Remember Urban Meyer, the former NFL head coach?
Yes, he’s also the guy who led the Florida Gators and the Ohio State Buckeyes to national championships.
Apparently, the Jacksonville Jaguars thought that his success in college would translate to the pros.
It is a success to some extent if the goal was to create a drama series.
There was always a new antic in the ongoing saga, be it opting to stay behind after a loss to kicking a player on his leg and questioning assistant coaches’ credentials.
Jaguars team owner Shahid Khan got so fed up that Meyer did not even finish the season.
However, his head-shaking legacy was brought into light by NFL reporter Dov Kleiman.

Kleiman shared an excerpt from an article by The Athletic’s Jayson Jenks and Mike Sando.
The article said that Meyer interviewed his former collegiate players to learn more about the NFL, including the salary cap.
It also said that he did the process for six months.
But throughout that time, he failed to learn players’ names.
The article continued, “Multiple sources said Meyer was unfamiliar with star players around the league including 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel, Seahawks safety Jamal Adams, and Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald.”
Did He Take The Job Seriously?
Undoubtedly, he had unlimited belief in himself even if the world around him was crumbling down.
That’s why he never took the blame for his embarrassing NFL stint.
While everyone thought that he’s already a footnote in the pro game, he comes back for yet more comic relief.
Seriously, he did not know three-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald?
Then how did he relay play calls against him when the Jaguars faced the Rams in Week 13?
Those recordings might be hilarious.
