Jaguars Owner Discusses Reasoning for Firing Urban Meyer

There are a lot of things Jaguars owner Shad Khan can deal with. However, being around a person who is not truthful is unacceptable. During the 2022 NFL draft, Khan opened up about his decision to fire the former Jacksonville coach, saying it had nothing to with “wins and losses.”

“I think when you know someone is not truthful, how can you be around someone, OK? We had Doug Marrone here four years,” Khan said. “We had Gus Bradley here four years. I have nothing but the utmost respect and friendship with them. That’s why they got the time, because it wasn’t a matter about respect or truth. It was a matter of wins and losses over four years. This [Urban Meyer situation] is much bigger than that.”

Bradley went 14–48 as a head coach in Jacksonville. Doug Marrone followed Bradley’s tenure, posting a 25–44 mark before Meyer took over.
