There you go...one of the dumbest appointments we’ve seen. Great start UrbanESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jaguars strength and conditioning coach Chris Doyle resigned.
Jaguars coach Urban Meyer hired Doyle on Thursday despite a reported track record of questionable training techniques and racist behavior. Last year, Iowa fired Doyle after sending more than a dozen student athletes to the hospital over two decades of coaching and after making a threat about sending a student athlete "back to the ghetto." Meyer "vetted" Doyle prior to hiring him this offseason, but he either glossed over his history or simply didn't care. Obviously the latter. As to why he resigned, Doyle said he "did not want to be a distraction." This is strike one for Meyer, who has brought off-field issues to each team he's been a part of recently.

i feel for the GM and rest of the FO. once they hired Myer it was done. everyone is going to be treated like they are his b*tch because thats how he runs things till he runs them into the ground and then decided to take time off for his own health and never return to coaching again.Its worse than that, now theres aggaravtion between hc and gm over the statement issued
How big is that contract he got again? Hope there is a team friendly exit clause.I expected the Urban Myer experience to be a train wreck. but didnt expect it to start so soon. I thought there would be 1-2 years of good grace before people start calling him out and question his sh*t
Jags assembling an all-star not quite has been staff.Jaguars hired Tom Gamble as a senior personnel executive.
The team says Gamble will assist GM Trent Baalke, who previously hired the former as a director of player personnel and assistant general manager with the 49ers, in all areas of player personnel. This upcoming year will be Gamble's 30th around the league. He most recently worked as the assistant general manager of the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes in 2020.
