Urban Meyer Hired as Head Coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars

Per multiple reports, former Ohio State head coach and college football icon Urban Meyer is finalizing a deal to become the next head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Meyer has had positive meetings with Jaguars owner Shad Khan, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter notes.  Meyer has been out of coaching since his final season in Columbus with the Buckeyes in 2018, and has spent the past two years as a studio analyst for Fox Sports’ college football coverage.

Jacksonville will be Meyer’s first coaching stop in the NFL.   The Jaguars went 1-15 this past season, leading to the firing of coach Doug Marrone, and have the No.1 overall pick in the NFL Draft where they are widely believed to select Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

Schefter notes the deal is not quite done but could be finalized any time.

The deal is now official. Below is the official statement from Jaguars owner Shad Khan.
