Urban Meyer to Jacksonville: He would join Paul Brown as only former Buckeye head coaches to lead a NFL team
Urban Meyer could become the second former Ohio State football coach to later become a head coach in the National Football League if he reaches an agreement to become the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The first was Paul Brown.
After winning six consecutive state titles for Massillon Washington High School, Brown was the head coach of Ohio State from 1941-1943, where he recorded a record of 18-8-1 and coached the Buckeyes to the school's first national championship in 1942.
And if Meyer would come even close to replicating Brown's success with Jacksonville, Jaguars fans would be beyond ecstatic.
Here's a look a Brown's legendary NFL coaching career.
Brown joined the Cleveland Browns in 1946 when the team was in the All American Football Conference.
While with the Browns, the team won all four All-American Football Conference championships.
