Urban Meyer is out of coaching retirement. The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially hired Meyer as the franchise’s new head coach.

“This is a great day for Jacksonville and Jaguars fans everywhere,” Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in a released statement.

“Urban Meyer is who we want and need, a leader, winner and champion who demands excellence and produces results. While Urban already enjoys a legacy in the game of football that few will ever match, his passion for the opportunity in front of him here in Jacksonville is powerful and unmistakable. I am proud to name Urban Meyer the new head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.”

Meyer succeeds Doug Marrone in the position as the sixth permanent head coach in the Jaguars’ 27-season history. Tom Coughlin was the Jacksonville head coach from 1995-2002, followed by Jack Del Rio from 2003-2011. After Del Rio, Mike Mularkey was the team’s head coach in 2012 with Gus Bradley in charge from 2013-2016. Marrone was head coach from 2017-20.

Meyer, who won two national championships at Florida, last coached at Ohio State. He was also a college head coach at Bowling Green at Utah. He went 17-6 at Bowling Green (2001-2002), 22-2 at Utah (2003-2004), 65-15 at Florida (2005-2010) and 83-9 at Ohio State (2012-2018).

Meyer, who has reportedly been assembling his coaching staff, will likely get to coach Trevor Lawrence as Jacksonville has the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
