Looks like Urban Meyer just might be headed to USC as everybody thought he would.
On Monday, the Jacksonville Jags head coach apologized at his weekly press conference after a video circulated over the weekend on social media showing him in an intimate and compromising situation with a woman that was not his wife. Shelley Meyer was at home watching their grandchidren.
“I just apologized to the team and staff for being a distraction,” Meyer said in his Monday press conference. “It’s stupid. I explained everything that happened. I need to own it. I should not have put myself in that position.”
More footage obtained also showed Meyer with his hands between the lady’s legs as well.
According to NFL reporter Michael Lombardi, the higher ups in the Jags organization have had several closed-door meetings to discuss possibly firing Meyer under a “morals clause” because he has become such a distraction.
Meyer said he was at an event and people tried to get him on the dance floor and were “screwing around,” and he should have left. He added he never should have put himself in that situation.
“I just have to do right,” Meyer said.
Meyer decided to stay in Ohio after his team’s Thursday night loss to the Bengals to visit with grandkids and family, which explains why he was still in the area. Meyer, the former Ohio State coach, is in his first season as the Jacksonville head coach and the team is currently 0-4 and barely looking competitive at all.
The Jaguars play the Tennessee Titans on Oct. 10.
