The Urban Meyer NFL Experiment Is Over in Jacksonville, Owner Releases Statement

Urban Meyer’s NFL stint was a short one, as it was revealed last night the Jaguars have decided to part ways with the controversial coach.

From Jaguars owner Shad Khan:

“After deliberation over many weeks and a thorough analysis of the entirety of Urban’s tenure with our team, I am bitterly disappointed to arrive at the conclusion that an immediate change is imperative for everyone. I informed Urban of the change this evening. As I stated in October, regaining our trust and respect was essential. Regrettably, it did not happen. “

Darrell Bevell, the offensive coordinator, will serve as interim coach for the remainder of the season, the owner said.

The Final Straw appeared to be a story about Meyer kicking his kicker.

Josh Lambo had accused the head coach of kicking him during a practice in August.

Lambo, who was released by the team in October after missing all three of his field-goal attempts in Weeks 1-3, told the Tampa Bay Times that Meyer came up to him while he was stretching and said, “Hey Dips–t, make your f–king kicks!”

“And kicks me in the leg,” Lambo said of Meyer.

According to the Times, Meyer denied what Lambo said was accurate.

The transition from esteemed college coach to the NFL  continues to be a difficult one.

Some of these guys aren’t skilled at dealing with millionaire athletes.

Urban will most likely land back in the college football scene..
