It sounds like Urban Meyer’s situation with the Jaguars is quickly unraveling.

According to Tim Pelissero, the situation behind closed doors with the Jags and the franchise’s head coach is quickly deteriorating as some believe he’s “shifting blame to players and coaches” as the team sits at an abysmal 2-10.

Furthermore, Meyer allegedly berated his assistant coaches for the lack of success.

Pelissero reported the following in part:

During a staff meeting, Meyer delivered a biting message that he’s a winner and his assistant coaches are losers, according to several people informed of the contents of the meeting, challenging each coach individually to explain when they’ve ever won and forcing them to defend their résumés.

He also reported that star receiver Marvin Jones “left the facility until other staff members convinced him to come back” amid ongoing issues, and when he did return, he proceeded to argue with the three-time national champion.

It might just be time to admit that the Urban Meyer experiment in Jacksonville has been an unmitigated disaster.

The team isn’t winning, he had the embarrassing dancing video come out and he’s now reportedly getting into hostile exchanges with players and coaches.

At this point, I’m not sure how anyone could sit here and argue this needs to continue.

Meyer needs to quit and return to college if he wants to keep coaching. Clearly, the Jaguars just aren’t for him, and that seems to be obvious at this point.
