Former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer had an infamous stint with the team in 2021, failing to last more than one year into the five-year contract he signed with the franchise. Meyer's tenure was marred by the team's struggles, outside distractions, and a number of scandals that reflected poorly upon the organization. It didn't take long for fans to see that Meyer was clearly out of his element coaching in the NFL. The Athleticvia Dov Kleiman, reported that Meyer was unfamiliar with many NFL players, including superstars such as Aaron Donald and Deebo Samuel.

In addition to not knowing who the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year was, Meyer was also unfamiliar with players such as Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams.

Speaking on Donald, Meyer allegedly asked a Jaguars' staffer during the season, “Who's this 99 guy on the Rams? I'm hearing he might be a problem for us,” a source told The Athletic.

Despite Meyer reportedly conducting a “six-month deep dive on the NFL” it seems he somehow managed to miss some pretty important information throughout his studies. Not knowing Aaron Donald and Deebo Samuel is barely excusable for even the most casual of football fans. It would be one thing had Meyer not known who some replacement-level players were (which we're sure was also the case). But to be unfamiliar with arguably the best defensive player in NFL history is nothing short of embarrassing.

There were red flags emerging throughout the entire Meyer era in Jacksonville, and the team ended up biting the bullet and cutting ties with the controversial head coach after less than one season in charge.
