The wait to find out if Urban Meyer will be the next head coach of the Jaguars continues as the two sides reportedly continue talking about the possibility.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Meyer and the Jaguars met again on Wednesday. Per the report, both sides are interested in finalizing a deal before the week is out but there’s no word on what the sticking points are in their discussions.

Word on Wednesday was that the Chargers have also been in touch with Meyer, but have not had a formal interview with him about their head coaching vacancy. Schefter reports that the Jaguars are the “one and only” for Meyer at this time, so it would seem things will have to fall apart with the Jags for other options to come into play.

There hasn’t been any sign of things going in that direction, but it remains a possibility until there’s word of a deal in Jacksonville.

  1. Who cares….they should be more worried about who will be playing left tackle, but then again its the Jaguars.

  2. Urb looking for more cash from Jaguars owner Shahid “Shaka” Kahn….15 million per year for 5 years?

  3. I say give him whatever he asks for. Even if he’s only here in Jax for 3 years. He’s a proven winner

  4. Big moneys. For what? Will his style translate to the men in pro ball? These aren’t top paid recruits. So he has quit jobs because of his health and now he wants this? He his own GM? Done in 2-3 yrs. After they jack up some more picks. As a Colts fan this offseason keeps getting better and better for us. Resign Tannehill to 100mil Titans!!!

  5. Why are NFL owners so obsessed with college coaches? How many have successfully made the transition to the NFL?
    Chip Kelly. Nope. Nick Saban. Nope. Dennis Erickson. Nope. The ol’ ball coach. Nope. Jimmy Johnson seems to be the last guy who successfully made the jump. Buyer beware.

    Does the name Pete Carroll ring a bell?

  7. One loss a year made him I’ll. Two losses put him in the hospital. I would hate to see the toll of a 9-7 season on the guy.

    It does with me. But I know that while Pete Carroll started out as an assistant on various college staffs, he also coached on NFL staffs in Buffalo, Minnesota, the New York Jets and San Francisco, and was head coach of both the Jets and Patriots before going to his biggest college successes at USC.
    Unlike former college coaches Chip Kelly, Nick Saban, Dennis Erickson, Steve Spurrier et al, Carroll was already a veteran pro coach when he left USC to have his first real NFL success in Seattle. He DIDN’T have a lot of success in New York or New England when he first came up from the college ranks.
