Urban Meyer finalizing deal to become head coach of Jacksonville Jaguars

Urban Meyer Jaguars coach


The Jacksonville Jaguars are one of several teams in the NFL searching for a new head coach and they’re on the verge of making what might end up being the biggest hire of the offseason, as multiple reports have the Jaguars inching closer to a contract with former Ohio State coach, Urban Meyer.

Meyer is reported to be “highly interested” in the Jaguars job, which makes sense considering Jacksonville is armed with the first overall pick and rights to Clemson quarterback, Trevor Lawrence. For a coach like Meyer, taking his first NFL gig with Lawrence as his franchise centerpiece is a best-case-scenario.

Meyer has three national championship victories and a 187-32 record on the college level. Meyer’s head-coaching stops include Ohio State, Florida, Utah, and Bowling Green.
