don’t expect to see Urban Meyer on the sidelines as a coach in the short term.

«And I had it all planned out,» Meyer continued. «I found the right guy in Ryan Day, who is fantastic. And I retired, went to Fox, was an AD assistant for two years, and then some teams approached me. And this team really appealed to me. Trevor Lawrence, who could be Hall of Famer someday, he’s that good, he had a great season. Obviously, it didn’t go well. I had no plans to do that at all. It just happened.»
Jacksonville hired Doug Pederson in the offseason to replace Meyer, and Lawrence and the Jaguars turned things around in 2022.
Under Pederson, the Jaguars went 9-8 during the regular season, won the AFC South, and advanced to the second round of the playoffs after completing the third-biggest comeback in NFL playoff history against the Los Angeles Chargers.

«They did a great job in free agency this year. But to me, and you know it, it’s kind of funny when you say the NFL is a quarterback league… Pop Warner is a quarterback league. So is high school. It’s a quarterback sport. And when you get a killer as Trevor Lawrence, or JT Barrett, or Cardale Jones, or Tim Tebow, you have a chance. So they have a great future.»
