Jaguars Part Ways With Coach Doug Marrone
The Jaguars are moving on from Doug Marrone after he took over as Jacksonville's interim coach in 2016.
The Jaguars confirmed the news on Twitter on Monday.
Marrone put together a 23-43 record in four-plus seasons with the Jags, including a 15-game losing streak in 2020 to lock up the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
That pick, of course, means the Jags have the right to select Clemson's Trevor Lawrence in the upcoming draft. That alone makes the Jaguars coaching job one of the more highly sought after positions. Jacksonville also has the most projected cap space next year with $77 million along with an extra first- and second-round picks.
Rumors are swirling that the Jaguars have their sights set on Urban Meyer to be the franchise's next coach. He's had success rebuilding programs in Utah, Florida and Ohio State, but will he be able to replicate that success in the NFL? With Lawrence as his QB, it's probably his best chance... if his health isn't a problem.
Who should the Jags hire to coach Lawrence and the new-look Jags?
