COLUMBUS, Ohio (WJW)– Former Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer is in talks to helm the Jacksonville Jaguars, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reported on Thursday.
Schefter said Meyer is highly interested in being the team’s next head coach.
Meyer, now a commentator for Fox Sports college football coverage, coached the Buckeyes from 2012 to 2018. He was suspended for three games for mishandling issues with then-assistant coach Zach Smith, who was accused of domestic violence.
Before that, the Ohio native was the head coach of the Florida Gators for five seasons. During his college coaching career, he won three national championships, three Big Ten titles and two SEC titles.
