Jags proprietor: Urban Meyer should ‘regain belief, respect’


2021-10-05 16:17:09 GMT+00:00 – Jacksonville Jaguars proprietor Shad Khan launched a press release Tuesday saying Urban Meyer must “regain our trust and respect” after a weekend incident between the married head coach and a younger girl was caught on video.

Khan’s assertion comes a day after Meyer apologized to the crew, followers and his household for the incident, which was recorded at a bar in Columbus, Ohio. The video went viral on social media.

“I have addressed this matter with Urban,” Khan wrote. .”.. His conduct last weekend was inexcusable. I appreciate Urban’s remorse, which I believe is sincere. Now, he must regain our trust and respect. That will require a personal commitment from Urban to everyone who supports, represents or plays for our team. I am confident he will deliver.”

The video confirmed Meyer sitting on a barstool together with his arms on the lady who was dancing on him. After his apology Monday for “being a distraction,” calling his actions “stupid,” one other video of the incident was launched and went viral, too.

Meyer, 57, acknowledged that his household is “upset.” He and his spouse, Shelley, have three kids and two grandchildren.

Meyer is off to an 0-4 begin in his NFL debut season. The Jaguars will host the Tennessee Titans (2-2) on Sunday.
