The Jacksonville Jaguars fired their former head coach Urban Meyer for cause with the intention of not paying him the remaining four years of his contract.
A source within the organization said the Jaguars’ reasons for withholding the remaining guarantees are not tied to one specific incident — but rather a cumulation of instances that Jacksonville’s officials believe justified the firing.
Meyer’s 11-month tenure also included controversial viral videos showing the former coach acting inappropriately with a woman at a restaurant/bar in Ohio after he stayed behind following a game against Cincinnati.
Darrell Bevell confirms that Urban Meyer left the Jaguars facility after practice yesterday and never returned, leaving staff to prep without him.
Heard they were in the dark as to where he was and what was happening.
