The Jacksonville Jaguars have appointed former Super Bowl-winning head coach Doug Pederson to lead them into next season.
Pederson takes over a Jaguars team, priced at 60/1 to win the 2022/23 AFC Championship, that parted company with Urban Meyer seven weeks ago close to the end of a bitterly disappointing 3-14 campaign.

The 54-year-old is coming off a sabbatical after a five-year stint in Philadelphia, where he led the Eagles to a 13-3 mark in his second year and end-of-season glory with victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
The Jaguars hope some of that magic can rub off on a group of players that are not without talent - particularly quarterback Trevor Lawrence who endured a tough rookie season in 2021.
"Doug Pederson four years ago won a Super Bowl as head coach of a franchise in pursuit of its first world championship," owner Shad Khan said in a statement.
"I hope Doug can replicate that magic here in Jacksonville, but what is certain is his proven leadership and experience as a winning head coach in the National Football League. It's exactly what our players deserve. Nothing less.
"Combine this with his acumen on the offensive side of the ball, and you have why I am proud to name Doug Pederson the new head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars."
Pederson made his name as a successful assistant under Andy Reid with the Kansas City Chiefs and Eagles - where his offenses ranked in the top 10 in three of his eight seasons as an offensive coordinator or head coach.
He became known for his innovative playcalls - such as the 'Philly Special' play that stunned the Patriots in the Super Bowl - and propensity to go for many more two-point conversions than his contemporaries.
