Don’t feel too bad for the fired coach as he and his wife Shelley made $150,000 on the sale.

The two-story house inside the gated Glen Kernan Golf & Country Club in South Jacksonville became briefly famous when images of its interiors were shared on social media early on in Meyer’s tenure with the NFL franchise. Specifically, a coffee table with an extensive number of framed photos overwhelmed onlookers.
So cool to be invited into the home of Shelley and Urban Meyer. Thought you’d like to see inside the home of the Jags’ head coach. I loved all the pictures. Shelley says Urban put every single one out + guess who used to live in this house? + funny story how they met. @FCN2go pic.twitter.com/BLFRdRbkXH

The massive home, which is located on 0.72 acres, includes a partial third floor, elevator, butler’s kitchen, game room, heated pool and spa, and a summer kitchen.
The Meyers purchased the home on April 16, 2021, but they didn’t have too much time to appreciate it. Meyer’s first and only season in Jacksonville was tumultuous, to say the least, and he was fired on Dec. 16 after 13 games. Now that the family appears to have relocated back to the comfy confines of Columbus it didn’t make much sense to maintain a house in a place where plenty of people were happy to see you lose your job.
Meyer recently joined the board of a foundation that will provide NIL money to Ohio State athletes and at least one Buckeyes insider thinks he’ll return to Fox Sports soon as an analyst. So we think the Meyers will be just fine, wherever they decide to call home in the future.
