Urban Meyer had some wild thoughts about getting fired.

The former Jaguars coach was fired by the franchise this past Thursday, and his fall from grace is among the worst in sports history. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The three-time national champion broke his silence on the situation during a chat with Ian Rapoport, and one of his main takeaways is that society is too “fragile.”

Meyer told Rapoport the following in part:

I think college has changed quite a bit, too. Just society has changed. You think how hard you pushed. … I believe there is greatness in everybody and it’s the coach’s job to find that greatness however you do that. Positive encouragement. Pushing them to be greater, making them work harder, identifying flaws and trying to fix [them]. I think everything is so fragile right now. And that includes coaching staffs. When I got into coaching, coaches weren’t making this kind of money and they didn’t have agents. Everything is so fragile where it used to be team, team, team. I remember talking about it in a staff meeting three days ago. I got into this profession because I had the greatest high school coach and it was all about team. All about the huddle.

You have to give credit to Urban Meyer for at least being consistent. The guy refuses to believe he’s the bad guy.

It’s not his problem his career went done in flames! Society has just changed too much. Everyone is just so damn fragile!

If only the Jaguars were tougher, they’d be undefeated and Urban Meyer would be the coach of the year. See, he just wanted to help people, but society is simply different from when he was winning at the college level.

People just can’t handle his genius coaching and awesome personality!

Never change, Urban! Never change!
