The Jacksonville Jaguars have no intention of paying Urban Meyer another dime. The team reportedly fired Meyer for cause, suggesting it doesn't want to pay out the rest of Meyer's contract, according to Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington of ESPN.
There wasn't one specific instance that led to the team firing Meyer for cause. The Jaguars reportedly fired Meyer as a result of all those issues, per Darlington and Schefter.
It's still possible Meyer — or more likely his legal team — will work out a resolution with the Jaguars, according to ESPN.
It is not unusual for situations like these — involving negated guarantees — to later be negotiated by the two sides in order to avoid a prolonged legal situation. It will be up to the lawyers involved in any negotiation between the Jags and Meyer to try to figure out if they can resolve the situation.
Meyer signed a five-year deal with the Jaguars in January. His salary was never officially revealed, though it's believed Meyer made roughly $9 million per season, according to Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson.
