Default Will Urban Myer be new Jags HC

My guess is Urban passed on Texas job before they even fired Tom Herman , now wondering if he will be HC at the Jags

No 1 pick and seems to have an owner that really wants to win , or so he says

Plus I read where they have a $100 million available under the salary cap


Would be curious to see how he does as NFL coach

I read he’s wanting $12m per year. That’s a whole lot of coin for a coach. It would match Belichick for the highest paid NFL coach.

A lot of people in this area have a bad taste for ol' Urban, I don't think he would be very popular pick with the fans.

He is looking for top NCAA $ which is way more than new to the NFL $

He's a good coach, who knows if that would translate to the NFL, but he's definitely not a really likeable guy.

Going rate for top coach whether NFL or NCAA like UM.

IF he came in and made Jax a winning program that would be chump change at that point

My deal with UM is he seems to get bored with programs very quickly , I think he left UF in some what of a mess or saw a downward spiral coming . Now with OSU they have not missed a beat really but my guess is recruiting is much easier at OSU than in Florida where you really compete with so many other programs

Tprice. To answer your question: Yes. And because many Jags fans are also UF fans, they will remember more details of his "highly unusual" departure than others. UM is obviously a very talented coach, and had great success at UF in a short time. He repeatedly stated that UF was his "forever job" and that he would never leave.

UM unexpectedly won the National Championship in '06, his second season at UF. Won it again in strong fashion in '08 and should have repeated in '09. Would have been pretty cool with the UF basketball team repeating in the same time frame. The entire UF starting defense from '08 came back for '09, along with Tebow and many of the good offensive players. Florida went to the SEC Championship game in '09 to meet (and should have beaten) Alabama again, as they had done in '08. What was not known at the time, at least by those outside of the program, was that UM was losing it. There was a pretty good warning sign when the night before the team was to leave for Atlanta one of the star players (I believe it was a D-lineman) was found passed out drunk behind the wheel of his car at an intersection. Car was running and in gear, with his foot on the brake. Rumors came out later that there had been a big team party that night, someone's birthday I think, and that the team was split over going or not. 1/2 the team, reportedly lead by Tebow, were adamantly opposed to going. It would appear that others (the other 1/2?) went. Where was UM during all of this? Apparently in throws of losing it.

Florida lost the game to Alabama, though they remarkably (under these circumstances) played them close until well into the second half. Shortly after the game health issues were reported for UM and I don't believe he even went with the team to attend the consolation Sugar Bowl. Due to his success, stature and publicly stated health issues UM stayed on at UF for the 2010 season in some sort of football advisory capacity, under the premise that he may well never coach again. By the end of 2010 he was healed and went "home" to Ohio State to take his "forever job", again. And, as you said, that didn't last very long, either.

If I'm a pro team owner trying to build up and flip a team, maybe I give UM a try? Otherwise it's seems like a bad idea to me. But I don't own a pro team. I'm not even a big fan of pro football. So take all of this for what-it's-worth, internet chatter and rumor.

If I remember correctly Saban is the highest paid college coach @ $9mil. Belichick is the highest paid NFL coach @ $12mil.

If Urban gets $12mil, that makes him the highest paid football coach (NFL or NCAA) in the nation. He’s a great coach, no question there. Is the worth that much $$$ though? NFL is a totally different animal than college and Urban hasn’t proven himself at the next level to warrant that kind of payout. Especially considering the population of Gator fans in that market, as another poster mentioned.

That stuff. This is serious SEC country and everyone knows how he went out at Florida and no one thought it as honest.

We all laughed when he did the same shit to Ohio State though.

Thanks. I do recall some of that but since not around the program did not pay it much attention. Seems like I do recall the incident with the D Lineman passed out in the car

This I agree on, NFL is fun to watch but those of us in SE LIVE for College football

Have to admit this thought crosses my mind, just something different in a NFL coach as compared to a D1 College coach. NFL players are grown men and do not get into all the “rah rah “ stuff .

But I do think the Jags Owner is to a point of “desperation” almost at this point and willing to try anything

Very few college coaches make it in NFL, Honestly have been surprised at how well Pete Carroll has done

Saban couldn’t cut it as an nfl coach, Urban will run for the hills when a player that makes more $ than him tells him you ain’t my Boss.

He ain’t worth 1.2 million a year , much less 12 million.

he’ll bail when the shit gets tough like he has done before, he quit on his teams before , he’ll do it again

Yep, that would be my beef with UM. When it is rolling he is happy, when the boat starts leaking he jumps ship


No way I am an owner of NFL team but that would be first thing that crossed my mind

Saban would still be in NFL if he would have gotten control over personnel decisions.....ie Drew Brees but since dolphins owner at that time wanted to be personnel director, saban left. And trust me, I don’t like saban but that is why he jumped on the dolphins....he is the hook-n-bull of his programs..

in the mean time, UM is a chump.
