Urban Meyer has been fired as head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars following a 2-11 start to the 2021 season that has been rife with controversy, with the latest coming earlier this week with allegations that Meyer called his assistant coaches “idiots” and even kicked a former placekicker.

Shortly after the firing was announced, team owner Shad Khan released the following statement:
