We all knew it was coming, and it’s now a done deal. First and foremost, major congratulations to Meyer. He’s a hall of fame caliber coach, and he dominated in college.

He won three rings, destroyed the SEC with Florida and manhandled the B1G with Ohio State.

Now, Meyer is making a jump that we don’t often see. After taking some time to himself in retirement, he’s headed to the NFL to coach the Jaguars.

I’d love to see the contract he’s on. You know the Jaguars are throwing serious money his way. Tons of cash!

Well, we’re officially embracing the chaos of Meyer in the NFL! There’s never been a college coach with his prestige to do it before. Remember, Nick Saban was good, but not great when he jumped to the Dolphins. Meyer is on a different level.

Let’s see how it all shakes out!
