From night club appearances to controversies involving his players, Urban Meyer’s career at Jacksonville Jaguars was nothing short of tumultuous. The Jaguars had a horrid start to the season, racking up an 0-4 record. However, a win against Miami Dolphins seemed to turn things around for them.

The Jaguars shut down Buffalo Bills in one of the most shocking upsets of the season, and things looked good for Meyer. Unfortunately, controversies outside the field led to his name being dragged through the mud. But now, shocking claims from Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo reveal the true nature of Meyer’s dismissal.

Lambo went on record to say Meyer once kicked him during practice. According to Lambo, Meyer said to him, “Hey Dipsh*t. Make your f*cking kicks.” Along with the distasteful line, Meyer also kicked the player while he was in a lunge position, hurting him. Issues with fellow Jaguars coaches also came into the picture, with some claiming he called them ‘losers’. His stock amongst his players also fell quite a bit, especially with the benching of RB James Robinson.

The NFL world is neither shocked nor surprised by this occurrence. Meyer had a mediocre run at the Jaguars and did close to nothing to raise their stock. Aside from drafting Trevor Lawrence, Meyer made a bunch of mistakes which eventually caught up to him. Stepping into the interim coach’s role is Darrell Bevell.
