It has been four days since Urban Meyer was fired by the Jaguars on Thursday after just 13 games.
A 2-11 record in the first year can be overlooked by any owner but when a coach has a blow up with coaches and players, be out on the town with another woman at a nightclub instead of being on the team’s airplane flight back home after a road trip, the owner is going to be tired of such controversies and that is what happened this past Thursday.
In many media reports, the 57-year-old Meyer did an interview with NFL.com and offered an apology to the City of Jacksonville, fans and ownwership: “I just apologize to Jacksonville. I love Jacksonville. It’s one of the reasons I took the job. I still think Shad Khan is a great owner. It’s heart-breaking. I just had a dream of it becoming a destination place with a new facility he agreed to build and some day to walk into that stadium where it’s standing room only. Because I know how bad the people of Jacksonville want it. So, I’m just heartbroken that we weren’t able to do that. I still believe it’s going to be done. It’s too good of a place.”
It is not known at this time what Meyer is going to do in the future. But he will land somewhere in college football.
