Urban Meyer will meet with Jaguars today about their head coach vacancy.
NFL Network reported that no deal is coming, and the team has not yet completed interviews with other head coach candidates.
Since Doug Marrone was fired, Meyer has been identified as the potential next head coach of the Jaguars. Although Meyer has no NFL experience at all, he is one of the best college football coaches of all time. He won national championships in Florida and Ohio, and his .853 winning percentage is the best of all major college football since the start of his career after World War II.
If Meyer does take on the job of the Jaguars, then people’s speculation will immediately turn to Meyer’s No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Although Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence (Trevor Lawrence) is widely regarded as the clear first choice, but Meyer may be considering Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields (Justin Fields) A coach. Meyer has never coached Fields, but Meyer is still close to Ohio State’s plan and has repeatedly praised Fields not only as a player in the field, but also for his leadership and character.
Meyer retired from Ohio State University on health grounds two years ago, but he retired from Florida State on health grounds, but this did not make him long-term withdrawal from coaching. If Meyer thinks he can win in Jacksonville, he won’t be surprised if he holds the post.
