Urban Meyer and the Jacksonville Jaguars skipped the honeymoon phase as the head coach’s era has featured turmoil and controversy.
Poor play on the football field is just part of his problems. There’s turmoil in the locker room after a video circulated on social media recently showing the Meyer at a bar dancing with a young woman. The now-viral video has brought even more unwanted attention to the coach as the situation in Jacksonville is reportedly described as reaching a “crisis point.”
The Jaguars have started the season with an NFL-worst record of 0-4. In addition to a lack of wins, there have been rumblings that players and staff alike have grown resentful towards Meyer because of his fiery coaching style. The head coach reportedly belittled the team during preseason games, lashing out in unhinged outbursts in the locker room. Now there’s an embarrassing off-field controversy they must deal with.
After leading a successful Ohio State program to a national championship in 2014 and maintaining a winning record over his six years there, Meyer’s already had a lot of eyes on him when it was announced that he would be coaching on the pro level for the Jaguars this season. Replacing former head coach Doug Marone—who led Jacksonville to their franchise-worst record of 1-15 during the 2019-2020 season—it wasn’t like Meyer’s had colossal shoes to fill entering his first NFL season. Yet, as soon as he was hired, controversy immediately followed. After being fined $100,000 in July for violating practice rules during organized team activities, Meyer dropped his coaching debut against the Texans, the beginning of what would be a rough four weeks for the team.
With Urban Meyer’s time in Jacksonville possibly numbered, here’s a timeline of everything that has happened since he was hired as the new head coach for the Jaguars.
