Urban Meyer previously said that there was “no chance” he would take the vacant USC Trojans football coaching job.
On CBS’s The NFL Today, La Canfora briefly discussed potential USC candidates, and also mentioned that Meyer might not quite be out of play.
“Urban Meyer says he’s not interested either, but many of his fellow coaches believe could be a one and done in Jacksonville,” La Canfora said.
The Trojans fired six-year head coach Clay Helton after their Week 2 loss to Stanford and then rebounded by winning 45-14 at Washington State.
“No chance,” Meyer told reporters Wednesday regarding the USC job. “I’m here. I’m committed to try and build an organization.”
Meyer has not completely been a hit within the Jaguars organization.
“He has everyone looking over their shoulders already,” a source with direct knowledge of the daily operations in Jacksonville told La Canfora. “He becomes unhinged way too easily, and he doesn’t know how to handle losing, even in the preseason. He loses it and wants to take over the drills himself. It’s not good.”
On Sunday, the Jags dropped to 0-2, losing 23-13 in the season’s home opener against the Denver Broncos.
