The Jacksonville Jaguars are reportedly meeting Friday with Urban Meyer.
According to Tom Pelissero, Meyer and the Jags are set to meet Friday as rumors continue to swirl he’s the leading candidate to be the team’s next head coach. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
No deal is imminent and the team has at least one other interview scheduled. But an important step in the process.

Buckle up, folks. It sounds like we’re nearing a decision from Meyer on whether or not he’s about to jump into the NFL waters.
It seems like the Jags are more or less all in on the retired Ohio State and Florida legend to take over the team.

Seeing as how owner Shad Khan has made it clear he’s trying to build a winning team and not one that simply exists, there’s no doubt in my mind Jacksonville would dump a bag of money on Meyer to come coach.
We’re talking about one of the greatest coaches to ever do it.
Urban Meyer supposedly wants $12M per year to coach in the NFL; given the current market for coaches, that’s not a crazy number https://t.co/hTUhT8vKba

This is now the biggest coaching story in the NFL, and we’re waiting on pins and needles to see what Meyer decides to do.
