Urban Meyer To Coach Jaguars? It Might Cost $12 Million Per Year

The Jacksonville Jaguars officially parted ways with head coach Doug Marrone, and it is hardly a secret that Urban Meyer is at the top of their wish list.

There have been reports that Meyer is open to making the jump to the NFL, but apparently interested teams have to be willing to write a massive check.

Meyer is looking for a salary of $12 million per year to coach the Jaguars, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports.

That sounds incredibly steep for someone with no NFL coaching experience, but Florio notes that the Carolina Panthers are paying Matt Rhule $9 million per year. Rhule’s only NFL coaching experience came when he spent a season as the New York Giants’ assistant offensive line coach in 2012. His collegiate resume obviously doesn’t compare to Meyer’s, so you’d expect Meyer to get more.

A $12 million salary would make Meyer one of the highest-paid — if not the highest-paid — coaches in the NFL.
