Things are getting set to change even more in Jacksonville than we might have originally thought. It’s a widely-known ‘secret’ that they will be taking Trevor Lawrence with the #1 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, and now it appears that they will also be making quite the move in terms of their next head coach. That’s because, according to sources earlier in the day, and then later confirmed by the team itself, Urban Meyer is joining the organization following rumors over the last few weeks that the two parties had been engaging in discussions.
Meyer, who would be taking on his first pro job, has three national college championships in his trophy cabinet and has led huge programs like Florida and most recently Ohio State in the past. Meyer, according to recent reports, had been putting together a potential staff, so it looks like this was always a just a matter of determining the numbers and the specific details. Now it’s officially on, and it will be an interesting ride to watch.
