The Jacksonville Jaguars are currently looking for Urban Meyer’s replacement as the team’s head coach after he was fired after only 13 games. It was reported that Meyer had been fired because he failed to change the culture in Jacksonville during his time at the helm.

While there are many names fit for the herculean task that Meyer failed to accomplish, the following prospects are arguably among the most suitable ones for the Jaguars.

1. Doug Pederson

Pederson is arguably one of the most successful coaches in the league. In his five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, the Super Bowl-winning head coach has a 42-37-1 record. He also led the team to two NFC East titles and took the franchise to three consecutive playoff appearances.

2. Eric Bieniemy

As one of the best coaching candidates, Bieniemy has been jobless the past two years. During his time with the Kansas City Chiefs as their offensive coordinator in 2018, he led them to score the most points per game in the NFL at 30.2. They also had the most yards per game at 403.1. During Bienemy’s run, Kansas City also went 47-14 with three conference championship game appearances and a Super Bowl title in 2019.

3. Josh McDaniels

McDaniels, who almost landed a job with the Philadelphia Eagles last year, has successfully coached New England Patriots’ Mac Jones to be one of the best rookie quarterbacks in the NFL with over 70 percent of passes completed for 2,869 yards, 16 touchdowns, eight interceptions and a 97.0 passer rating.

The 45-year-old coach has also served as a head coach in the NFL before when he spent two seasons in charge of the Denver Broncos in 2009 and 2010. He went 11-17 before being fired in Week 13 of his second season.
