The video of Urban Meyer went viral after the Jaguars suffered a 24-21 loss to the Bengals on Thursday. This marks the team’s fourth straight loss and it appears that Urban decided to hit the town afterwards to let loose.
A video showing a woman grinding on Urban began to circulate around the internet, while pictures of the coach posing with various women also made their way online.
During a morning news press conference Urban addressed the situation and said:
“I just apologized to the team and the staff for being a distraction. It was stupid. I explained everything that happened and owned it, and, you know, just stupid, should not have had myself in that kind of position.”
He continued on to explain: “There’s a big group next to our restaurant and they wanted me to come over and take pictures and I did. They were trying to pull me out on the dance floor, screwing around, and I should have left.”
