The Jacksonville Jaguars are in the market for a head coach after the failed Urban Meyer experiment ended after 13 games. Meyer never looked suited for the NFL, and the Jaguars now have to find a new leader for their rebuild. This is an intriguing job despite some major concerns about leadership, as there was some big investment in facilities and Trevor Lawrence has a high ceiling as a quarterback.
