Urban Meyer Named Head Coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars
January 14Grant WhiteSportsGrid
It will be a homecoming of sorts for Urban Meyer as he has officially joined on as head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, as per Ian Rapoport. Meyer is returning to Florida, where he rose to prominence as head coach of the Florida Gators.
Meyer’s head coaching record speaks for itself. He was a three-time National Champion, twice with Florida and once with the Ohio State Buckeyes, and lead both teams to multiple division titles across 13 years split between the two programs. Before coaching the Gators, he also spent two seasons with the Bowling Green Falcons and Utah Utes. He accumulated a 187-32 record as head coach in the NCAA.
Meyer has never coached in the NFL, so there’s no telling if his approach will work or be acclimated to the professional league’s rigours. One thing is for certain; the Jaguars will take any help they can get. The Jags have one winning season since 2008 and have gone through five coaches in that time. Surely, the Jags brass hopes that Meyer can ply his trade and help return another Florida team to glory.
