Six in the mix to become new head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars

Well, that Urban Meyer hire turned out to be a debacle, huh?

It was time for him to go and the Jags figured: Let’s cut bait. They’ll eat some serious dough but billionaire owner Shad Kahn had seen and heard enough. It’s rare when an NFL coach is dismissed during the regular season (and terrible for the team's betting odds, which is all we care about) – that’s usually reserved for Black Monday when head honchos are given their pink slips.

So, the Jaguars now look forward to finding their next leader.

Here are the six likely odds-on favorites (OddsSeeker will give you all the opportunities to speculate) to replace Meyer.

Byron Leftwich

The former Jags QB and current Tampa Bay Bucs offensive coordinator is seen as a rising star in the coaching ranks. What the offensive-minded man has accomplished, working alongside Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians, while propelling Tom Brady’s continued success in their two seasons together in Florida (and cementing the Bucs as one of the best NFL teams in the past decade), makes him the frontrunner.

Eric Bieniemy

Another creative coach and the current offensive coordinator for the explosive Kansas City Chiefs, he’s long been thought of as a future head coach in the NFL and this might be the right time and the right place to help Jags QB Trevor Lawrence reach his full potential. Together, this could be a dynamo combo.

Kellen Moore

He’s a former quarterback who starred at Boise State and is the offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys. Jerry Jones loves the guy and would hate to lose him, but eventually, he’s out of the Lone Star state. He’s got bigger dreams and that’s as an eventual NFL head coach. Book it. May not be with the Jags, but someday, somewhere, soon.

Doug Pedersen

The Super Bowl-winning coach (Eagles, SB 52, 2017 season) ultimately received no brotherly love from the franchise despite guiding the Eagles to three playoffs in his five seasons at the helm. That’s Philly for ya. Tough crowd. He’ll get a second chance somewhere soon.

Josh McDaniels

The offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the New England Patriots is lauded for helping develop Pats QB Mac Jones, who’ll likely be named NFL Rookie of the Year. That will intrigue the Jags as they look for someone to mentor Lawrence.

Brian Daboll

The Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator is another hot name in coaching circles and he’s done wonders with quarterback Josh Allen. He’s a guy that the Jags will look at closely as they seek someone who can mine the gold from their prized No. 1 overall pick. Lawrence is a once-in-a-decade QB dude and this time it’s crucial for the Jags to get the coaching hire right.
