Jacksonville Jaguars rookie Trevor Lawrence opened up Thursday about Urban Meyer’s firing.

The quarterback said he wished nothing but the best for Meyer and his future, but for the guys in the locker room, he said he thought the move brought some “clarity.”

The Jaguars decided to part ways with Meyer after a series of missteps that culminated in a 20-0 loss to the Tennessee Titans and were followed by accusations made by former kicker Josh Lambo who told the Tampa Bay Times that Meyer kicked him during practice in August.

Lawrence said he found out Meyer was fired in the morning when he woke up.

“I actually, I didn’t find out until this morning. I woke up, I guess it was around six or whatever, and saw it on my phone. I had some texts and then just naturally kind of Googled it to see what’s going on just to be honest. Saw that and I rolled over and told Marissa [his wife], ‘Hey, this just happened. It’ll be an interesting day at work. I’m going to go in and see,’” Lawrence said.

“Obviously, it’s not ideal. You look at where we’re at. This is not where you imagined you’d be at, at this point, but you have to make the most of it and I think we’re going to do that. I like where we’re at. The positivity today despite everything going on was awesome. We had a great day.”

Jacksonville will take on the Houston Texans with Darrell Bevell filling in as interim head coach.
