NFL world reacts to Urban Meyer firing
Urban Meyer was fired by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday night, and the NFL world reacted.
The Jags were 2-11 under Meyer, who was in his first season as the team’s head coach.
Meyer’s tenure was a complete mess. Aside from the poor performance on the field, the former national championship-winning coach was part of multiple controversies. The capper came when he was accused Wednesday of kicking a former player during training camp.
After news broke regarding the firing, several people reacted on Twitter. Here are some of the reactions:

Things must have gotten really bad in Jacksonville for Urban to get fired before he could fake a health scare

Yep, that summarizes it.
Darrell Bevell will be the interim head coach for the Jags now that Meyer has been fired.
