Urban Meyer was the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars for just 13 games during the 2021 season. During that time, he managed to become one of the worst head coaches of all time, and his sacking came as a relief to the Jaguars’ players.
From the start, Urban Meyer set a poor standard in Jacksonville when he saw him dancing at a bar with a woman who wasn’t his wife. That’s really not how things were supposed to start for him and it only got worse when he reportedly kicked Josh Lambo and then justified it “I’m the head coach, I’ll kick you whenever I want.”
As if that wasn’t bad enough, a recent report from The Athletic revealed what was going on behind the scenes and just how incredibly bad things were in Jacksonville.

The Athletic’s report revealed just how bad things were in Jacksonville, Urban Meyer was quoted as saying by people at a meeting “And do you know what would happen if I cut you guys? You couldn’t get a job that cost more than $15 an hour.” This really annoyed one veteran player when he said ‘The Athletic’. “After that, I lost all respect for him.” One of the experienced front office workers described the environment as “The most toxic environment I’ve ever been in. Far from even close.”
Along with that atrocity, Meyer didn’t seem to bother studying the game to the next level, not knowing some star players like Deebo Samuel and Jamal Adams. The worst part was when he didn’t know who Aaron Donald was when he reportedly asked one of his associates “Who is that 99 guy in the Rams? I hear he could be a problem for us.”
When Urban Meyer demeaned his players and was so disrespectful to them and seemed like he didn’t care about learning more about the league, Twitter had an absolute field day with him and made him the laughingstock of the internet. Here are some of the best reactions.
