Amid a tumultuous season filled with several controversies, the Jacksonville Jaguars have decided to part ways with head coach Urban Meyer.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network dropped the bomb on Wednesday night, and the Jaguars made their official announcement just moments later.

Meyer came out of retirement this 2021 to take over the Jacksonville franchise, with high hopes that he could turn things around for the team alongside their prized rookie QB Trevor Lawrence. Unfortunately, that has not been the case.

When the Jaguars hired Urban Meyer to be the coach, there were expectations he can bring the same level of success and stability as he did in the collegiate level with Utah, Florida and Ohio State. They won't sign him on a five-year deal if they don't have that kind of expectations anyway.

However, right after he started, he already brought several headline-generating issues.

First off, he signed Tim Tebow, which was largely criticized by fans and experts alike. While it died down when Tebow was cut, it didn't end there. Midway through the season, he was on the headlines once again after an embarrassing video surfaced showing him at a bar with a woman who was not his wife.

The recent controversy he's involved in might be the biggest, and it is clearly the last straw that pushed the Jaguars to fire him. According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the “months of tension surrounding Jaguars coach Urban Meyer has boiled over with multiple run-ins with players and other coaches in recent weeks.”

More recently, Meyer has been accused by former kicker Josh Lambo of actually kicking him, though the Jaguars interestingly sided with their now ex-coach.

Controversies aside, though, the Jaguars have also struggled on the field with Meyer leading the way. They went 2-11 in their first 13 games of the campaign, so the writing was already in the wall for the famed tactician.

“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,” team owner Shad Khan said in a statement about Meyer's dismissal, per ESPN. “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.”

“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.”

Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell will replace Meyer as Jaguars coach on an interim basis. For what it's worth, general manager Trent Baalke will keep his position.
