Jaguars meet with Urban Meyer to discuss head coaching vacancy

The Jacksonville Jaguars held a meeting with Urban Meyer on Friday to discuss the team's head coaching vacancy, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero and NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via informed sources.

No deal is imminent with Meyer, Pelissero added, and the team still has at least one interview scheduled.

The Jaguars have already interviewed Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and Falcons interim coach Raheem Morris, with 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh scheduled for Saturday.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan intends to run a thorough process and consider all options, according to Pelissero, who stressed there is no deal in place with Meyer or anyone else, per a source.

The Jaguars fired Doug Marrone last week after a 1-15 campaign and are also looking for a new general manager after firing Dave Caldwell during the season.

The Jaguars hold the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Meyer, 56, is one of the most accomplished college head coaches in recent memory, leading the Florida Gators to two national championships in 2006 and 2008, and the Ohio State Buckeyes in 2014. Meyer retired from Ohio State two years ago, citing health reasons, and worked this year as a college football analyst for FOX.
