UPDATE: The Jaguars have hired Urban Myer as their head coach.

The Jaguars have officially moved on from former head coach Doug Marrone after finishing the season with a 1-15 record and the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. After managing a 10-6 record to kick off his inaugural season as HC, things spiraled quickly, accumulating just 12 total wins in the three seasons to follow.

In the past two seasons, the team has taken drastic steps to dismantle and rebuild their franchise’s culture for the seasons to come. In that span, the Jaguars released former first-round RB Leonard Fournette, in addition to trading away their former cornerstone defensive pieces Jalen Ramsey, Yannick Ngakoue, AJ Bouye and Calais Campbell. A bold, but fresh start, indeed.

As Adam Schefter points out, the Jaguars’ vacancy does come with its perks.

Interviewed

JAN 14 UPDATE: Adam Schefter is reporting Meyer and the Jaguars are in advanced talks.

Interview request

John Lynch announced Monday that the Jaguars have requested to interview San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh. He’s one of the more promising candidates in the league, with additional interview requests from the Lions and Falcons.
