JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA (Jaguars) –After a rocky first year as an NFL head coach, the Jacksonville Jaguars announced on Thursday that Urban Meyer will no longer serve as head after just 13 games in the NFL.

Battled with controversies and allegations by coaches and players, the Jaguars decision was made on top of a challenging year on the field as well with the Jaguars currently sitting with a 2-11 overall record.

“Darrell Bevell will serve as interim head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars for the balance of the 2021 season. Darrell succeeds Urban Meyer.

After deliberation over many weeks and a thorough analysis of the entirety of Urban’s tenure with our team, I am bitterly disappointed to arrive at the conclusion that an immediate change is imperative for everyone,” said team owner Shad Khan.

“I informed Urban of the change this evening. As I stated in October, regaining our trust and respect was essential. Regrettably, it did not happen.

Trent Baalke continues as our general manager and will work with Darrell to ensure that our team will be inspired and competitive while representing Jacksonville proudly over our final four games of the season.

In the spirit of closure and recharging our players, staff and fan base, I will not comment further until some point following the conclusion of the NFL season.”
