The rumors of Meyer to the Jaguars have heated up in recent days, with NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport singling him out as at “the top of the Jaguars wish list” and likely to be extended an offer by Shad Khan.

“If they do move on, which again I believe is likely, a couple of names to keep an eye on for Jacksonville, which should be one of the prime locations for a new general manager or for a new head coach. One of the names to watch Urban Meyer, the former Florida coach, former Ohio State coach, won national titles and one of the best developers of quarterbacks we’ve seen in a long time. He is believed to be at the top of the Jaguars wish list, he’s also told potential assistants he believes the job is his if he wants it. It’s really just a matter of medically health wise does Urban Meyer, who has retired a couple of different times for health reasons, does he want to do it.”

The interest in Meyer had been rumored since last offseason and was initially reported about two weeks ago, but with it now being Black Monday in the NFL we’ll see just how much interest there really is.
