The big news in Jacksonville this weekend is of course the viral video of Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer getting his grind on with some young woman at his Columbus-area bar.
The 0-4 Jags lost to the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday, so Meyer took the opportunity to spend a little time with the family down the road in Columbus.
The internet ran WILD with the video, with nothing more hilarious that the hundreds of hilarious Tim Tebow memes, but ultimately for Urban, the scene was more distracting than anything. Especially coming from a guy that always preaches on avoiding bad situations.
He issued the following apology today:
“I just apologized to the team and the staff for being a distraction… just stupid. I explained everything that happened and owned it and… just stupid. I should not have myself in that position.”
When the team traveled back to Jacksonville, Urban stayed in Ohio to spend time with his family.
“I stayed to see the grandkids and we all went to dinner that night at the restaurant.
And then there’s a big group next to the restaurant and they wanted me to take pictures and I did. They tried to pull me out on the dance floor screwing around and I should’ve left.”
He also added that he talked to his family regarding the incident as well.
Needless to say, they were less than pleased with the video:
“Yeah, of course I did. That’s not me… and they’re upset.”
