All the controversies surrounding Urban Meyer and it took Josh Lambo telling his story of being kicked by him to finally get the head coach fired before the end of his first season as an NFL head coach.
The former Jacksonville Jaguars kicker had social media going nuts over the revelation and eventually the owner had to part ways with Meyer as a result.
Here is Lambo explaining what happened on that fateful day where Urban kicked him in his leg/hip, which was the same way that caused him to miss a ton of games the previous year.
“I’m in a lunge position. Left leg forward, right leg back,” Lambo told the newspaper. “Urban Meyer, while I’m in that stretch position, comes up to me and says, ‘Hey, dips—, make your f—ing kicks!’ And kicks me in the leg.”
“It certainly wasn’t as hard as he could’ve done it, but it certainly wasn’t a love tap,” Lambo continued. “Truthfully, I’d register it as a five (out of 10). Which in the workplace, I don’t care if it’s football or not, the boss can’t strike an employee. And for a second, I couldn’t believe it actually happened. Pardon my vulgarity, I said, ‘Don’t you ever f—ing kick me again!’ And his response was, ‘I’m the head ball coach, I’ll kick you whenever the f— I want.’”
Lambo also said that Meyer doesn’t call special teams players by name.
“It was ‘Kicker, punter, long snapper.’ Or s—bag, dips—, or whatever the hell it was,” Lambo said.
Meyer responded to all of Lambo’s claims before he got fired by the team.
“Josh’s characterization of me and this incident is completely inaccurate, and there are eyewitnesses to refute his account,” Meyer said. “(General manager) Trent (Baalke) and I met with him on multiple occasions to encourage his performance, and this was never brought up.”
Lambo was released by the Jaguars in October.
Urban Meyer was fired in December.
