"Urban Meyer is who we want and need, a leader, victor and champion who demands excellence and produces results", Khan's statement read.
Urban Meyer finally makes the jump to the NFL.
The Jacksonville Jaguars announced the hiring of Meyer on Thursday, officially confirming the 56-year-old as the franchise's next head coach.
Meyer is making the transition from the college game after a two-year hiatus after he left his head coaching position at Ohio State. He has since worked as a college football studio analyst for Fox Sports. He won three national championships, two at Florida and one at Ohio State.

It is likely that the recently identified version of the virus from Britain is "in every state or most states", said Dr. The agency said it delayed the effective date until January 26 to give airlines and travelers time to comply.
Jacksonville is considered perhaps the most attractive of the openings because the team has the No. 1 selection in the 2021 NFL draft and a projected projected league-high $77.6 million in cap space. Meyer retired from coaching following the 2018 season because of health reasons. "I'm proud to name Urban the new head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars". "Jacksonville has an enthusiastic fan base, and the fans deserve a winning team".
Meyer had an impressive 187-32 overall record with coaching stints at Ohio State, Florida, Utah, and Bowling Green. I've analyzed this decision from every angle-the time is right in Jacksonville, and the time is right for me to return to coaching. Meyer has never coached in the NFL.
Doug Marrone was sacked as the Jaguars head coach at the beginning of January at the end of a 1-15 campaign.
Khan, who has owned the Jaguars since 2012, also has Big Ten Conference ties. The Jaguars have the top pick of the draft, which means Meyer will be able to choose his own quarterback - likely Trevor Lawrence - right out of the gate.
