Meyer has captured three national championships (2 with Florida, 1 with Ohio State) and has posted a 187-32 record as a college football head coach. Meyer stepped away from coaching in 2018 because of health reasons and served as a broadcaster for FOX and the Big Ten Network during his retirement.
Since reaching the AFC Championship Game in 2017, the Jaguars have posted three consecutive losing seasons. In Meyer’s debut, the Jaguars lost its season opener at the Texans.
