Report: Urban Meyer met with Jaguars owner Shad Khan on his boat to discuss head coach job
Shad Khan ain’t messing around, the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars putting a full-court press on Urban Meyer to become the next head coach of his team.
Meyer, strongly linked to becoming the Jaguars head coach, apparently has met with Khan on more than one occasion on his luxury yacht. A yacht that is simply obscene (and for sale, apparently).
Urban Meyer and the Jags met Friday night on Shad Khan’s boat in Florida, but it was not the first time the two sides have been together, per sources. There has been regular communication and interaction between the two sides. https://t.co/vDbRpgQcfI

The boat is worthy of a Bond villain, to say the least. This is not Judge Smails little dinghy in Caddyshack.
Boat might be an understatement. Shad Khan has a 312-ft, $218M yacht named Kismet (it is currently for sale). pic.twitter.com/KXM2RQTFPG

While he hasn’t coached in two years, Meyer is the most intriguing name in NFL coaching circles this offseason. Despite having never coached in the league, there is no denying that he has quite the resume at the college level including 2014 when he won the national championship in 2014.
Meyer, coincidentally, won two other national championships while at Florida.
The Jaguars are a fascinating rebuild, holding two first round picks (including No. 1 overall) in the spring’s NFL Draft. In addition, they have the most salary cap space of any team in the league.
They appear poised to spend this offseason. No wonder Khan wants to sell the boat.
