People were quick to remember that Urban Meyer has a history of cover ups after he was fired by the Jaguars. And mainly, Meyer’s history with convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez was at the forefront.
After kicker Josh Lambo accused Meyer of kicking him during a practice, he was finally let go as the head coach of the Jaguars late Wednesday night.

Shortly after Urban Meyer’s disastrous tenure came to a sudden end, people were flocking to social media to remember the coach’s role in the Aaron Hernandez story.
At UF he covered up troubles for Aaron Hernandez including failed drug tests, assault and shooting incident.
At tOSU he knowingly kept a coach on staff despite knowing domestic abuse was going on & along with his wife tried to cover it up.

I’m going to venture a guess that Urban never kicked Aaron Hernandez. 😂

If you would’ve told me that after years of covering up failed drug tests, Aaron Hernandez, a coach’s domestic abuse and countless other controversies that Josh Lambo would be the final torpedo to sink the Urban Meyer ship, I don’t think I would’ve believed you. Wild ride.

If Urban digs that grave much deeper he’s gonna run into Aaron Hernandez

Nobody’s defending Urban Meyer’s character here. But I also don’t think it’s completely fair to blame him for anything about Aaron Hernandez being a convicted murderer.
Hernandez was famously found dead in his jail cell after hanging himself shortly into his stay.
Now that Urban Meyer isn’t a “winner” anymore, people are quick to recognize that his track record away from the football field is worrisome. Funny how that works…
