Urban Meyer’s NFL coaching career is off to a not-so stellar start as the Jacksonville Jaguars are 0-2 after two games.
The Jags opened the season with an embarrassing blowout loss to the Houston Texans and followed it up with a loss to the Denver Broncos.
Two games into his tenure as the team’s coach, there’s already been speculation about Meyer’s future. He had to answer questions about the vacant USC Trojans job. Meyer had a blunt response, saying he’s not interested.
“No chance,” Meyer told reporters about the USC job. “I’m here. I’m committed to try and build an organization.”
However, not everyone believes Meyer will be a longterm coach in the National Football League. According to a report from CBS Sports, other coaches believe Meyer will be one-and-done.
