There have been plenty of reports about Urban Meyer’s disastrous, brief tenure with the Jacksonville Jaguars during the 2021-22 NFL season, but the latest report is downright embarrassing.
According to a report from The Athletic, Meyer was unfamiliar with a number of the league’s top stars, including Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle/three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald.
“Who’s this 99 guy on the Rams?” Meyer asked one staffer during the season, according to a the report. “I’m hearing he might be a problem for us.”
Multiple sources told The Athletic that former Jaguars coach Urban Meyer was unfamiliar with star players around the NFL, including
◽️ Deebo Samuel
◽️ Jamal Adams
◽️ Aaron Donald

How that didn’t immediately raise a red flag we will never know, but everyone found out that Meyer was not suited for the NFL after his 2-11 record with the Jaguars and the multiple reports about the disfunction behind the scenes.
So should we really be surprised?
The one thing that this should guarantee is that Meyer never gets a television gig talking about the NFL.
