University of Texas Chief of Staff Fernando Lovo is expected to join Urban Meyer on the Jacksonville Jaguars staff.
At both Texas and the University of Houston, Lovo served as former Texas Head Coach Tom Herman’s right hand man, according to Bruce Feldman. At Houston, Lovo worked directly with their strength, sports medicine, football video, equipment and administrative staffs, according to Texas Sports. In addition to this, Lovo served as the liason between athletics communication and administration, marketing, development, academics, and gameday operations office. Lovo also worked under Meyer at the University of Florida (football operations assistant) and Ohio State University as the Football Operations Coordinator.
Meyer told Jaguars.com digital reporter JP Shadrick yesterday about the importance of building an elite staff, and with the Lovo hire, Meyer seems well on his way.
