Collegiate coaching legend Urban Meyer is set to jump to the NFL in 2021 after taking over as the next head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jacksonville is in need of someone to give them an identity and build them into a contender, and the championship-winning head coach is exactly the man up to the task.

Meyer is making additions to his coaching staff in preparation for the season, and he's tapping into his Ohio State roots for the team's new strength & conditioning coach.

Former Ohio State and NFL linebacker Anthony Schlegel will join Meyer in Jacksonville, reuniting him with the head coach.

Schlegel's claim to fame doesn't come from his Buckeye days, or his brief NFL stints with the New York Jets and Cincinnati Bengals. No, the former linebacker is most well known for absolutely destroying a fan who ran onto the field when he was on Meyer's staff in 2014.

As if being a former middle linebacker isn't enough to boost his reputation, that body slam certainly does the trick.

Schlegel previously served as strength & conditioning coach under Meyer at Ohio State, so he has the coaching and playing experience to bring value to Meyer's new staff in Jacksonville.

A reunion with former star QB Tim Tebow isn't in the cards for now, though.
