For Urban Meyer, January probably looks like it happened eight years ago, rather than eight months ago.
“ I’m ready to train the Jacksonville Jaguars ” Meyer said in a statement when the team hired him.
“I have looked at this decision from all angles: now is the right time in Jacksonville, and the time is right for me to be a coach again. I am excited about the future of this organization and our prospect of long-term success. “
An image, or in this case, a video, paints a thousand words. Earlier this week, Meyer looked miserable as he had to answer questions about rumors swirling about his possible interest in the USC head coach vacancy that opened this week.
“There is no chance,” Meyer said.
But does your body language agree? You are the judge.
Since Meyer took the job, It’s been a shit show in Jacksonville – and that’s being nice. Hired a coach with history of racist behavior in Iowa, despite “deep scrutiny” – signed Tim Tebow to play tight end and then cut him, has racked up fines for himself and the team for not knowing the rules, traded in a solid backup quarterback at Gardner Minshew, and according to a new report, is the only reason team morale is low.
Even as the Jaguars enter Week 2, it seems like we’re all trying to figure out when, not if, Meyer will step down as it feels inevitable as Thanos.
If that happens, Meyer will join the “Quit List,” which is a group of soccer coaches who quit their teams after saying they wouldn’t, and / or left before even starting.
