Despite their shambolic on-field performance, they are not short of controversy off-field too. After Jaguars’ recent loss to the Bengals, a video went viral of their head coach Urban Meyer at a bar in Ohio with women in compromising positions.

Jacksonville Jaguars coach Urban Meyer last night issued an apology to his team and to his family in a public press conference. Meyer described the incident, which seemed to take place at his Urban Chophouse in the Short North, as a “distraction.”

“I just apologized to the team and the staff for being a distraction. It’s stupid,” Meyer said. “I explained everything that happened and owned it. I should not have put that myself in that kind of position, I should have left.” When quipped if he apologized to his family, he said, “Of course I did. They were upset.”
