Buccaneers: Leonard Fournette indicates the Jaguars were correct about Byron Leftwich

At the end of the season, the Buccaneers might lose Byron Leftwich to the Jaguars.

 At the end of the season, the Buccaneers might lose Byron Leftwich to the Jaguars.

The Urban Meyer saga is unfolding just as everyone expected before the season began. Meyer's baptism by fire in the NFL demonstrates that the job may become more difficult when everyone is on an equal playing field, but this calamity may now have an influence on the Buccaneers.

After a season with the worst coach in football, the Jaguars will need to make a significant change if they are to correct their course. With Trevor Lawrence and a pile of financial money, Jacksonville is still an appealing position, but a quality coach is more crucial than ever.

As NFL clubs become aware of the trends, young, offensive-minded head coaches are being hired earlier than ever before, and Byron Leftwich has emerged as one of the leading prospects to right the ship in Jacksonville.

In a Tweet by Jordan Schultz, Jaguars owner Shad Khan acknowledged that Leftwich is on the team's early interest list. Todd Bowles is also in the discussion, but given Jacksonville's desperate need for offense, it appears like Leftwich would be a better fit. It's also worth noting that Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore isn't on this list, though that should change as time goes on.

To add to his character and potential head coach credentials, Leonard Fournette expressed nothing but praise for Leftwich in a Twitter thread about the conclusion of the Meyer era.

Nobody should be surprised by Fournette's assessment of Leftwich. Under Leftwich, Lenny has had one of his greatest seasons, and Byron has demonstrated his player-first approach to coaching on a regular basis, something the Jaguars should be extremely glad to add to their youthful locker room.

The Buccaneers and Fournette would undoubtedly like to have Leftwich for a long time, but it is past time for Leftwich to begin receiving the accolades he deserves.
