Jaguars Urban Meyer: ‘No chance’ to leave Jacksonville to coach USC

Must read

USC fired head coach Clay Helton Monday afternoon, just two games away from the 2021 college football season. At the time, the school said they were looking for a “leadership change” to fill one of the jobs. most desired in college football.

However, Urban Meyer will not compete for that position. The Jaguars freshman coach confirmed he had no interest in leaving Jacksonville to return to college play.

“No possibility,” Meyer told reporters to join USC. “I am committed here and to building an organization.”

BENDER: USC’s Top 10 Candidates to Replace Clay Helton Next Season

Things have gotten off to a rocky start during Meyer’s tenure at the Jaguars. A report by Jason La Canfora prior to Week 1 indicated that Meyer’s “unhinged” style was having a negative impact on his relationship with his players.

“He already has everyone looking over his shoulder,” a source told CBS. “He freaks out too easily and doesn’t know how to handle losses, even in the preseason. He loses it and wants to take over the drills himself. He’s not good.”

Certainly, Week 1 was not a good one for the Jaguars. They were defeated by the Texans, 37-21. Houston is widely regarded as one of the worst teams in the NFL, so losing like that was humiliating for Meyer and Co.

Meyer won national championships at Ohio State and Florida, and had an undefeated season in Utah. He is third all-time among Division 1 coaches in winning percentage with a minimum of 100 games, behind only Notre Dame’s Knute Rockne and Frank Leahy. That’s why speculation has grown that he could be one of the candidates for the USC job. That doesn’t seem likely after Meyer’s comments Wednesday, but nothing can ever be ruled out.

After all, Nick Saban and Bobby Petrino left the Dolphins and Falcons respectively to take SEC jobs in Alabama and Arkansas. None of the coaches indicated that they were considering leaving their posts prior to their moves.

Of course, Meyer has been with the Jaguars for less than a year, so you may want to see this. When he joined Jacksonville, he acknowledged that he was excited about the future of the team.

“I am excited about the future of this organization and our prospect of long-term success,” Meyer wrote in a declaration.

So, it looks like it will stick around for now. However, this will be a situation to watch in the future. Because if Meyer continues to have trouble adjusting to the NFL, that might make him consider jumping ship.
