Urban Meyer is opening up about his disastrous tenure with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Meyer sat down for an exclusive interview with Outkick’s Dan Dakich which he said led him to depression and was the “worst experience” of his professional career.
After multiple scandals and losses, Meyer was fired 13 games into the season.
“We should have done better. I’m not ashamed to say that,” Meyer said. “It eats away at your soul. I tried to train myself to say it happens in the NFL.”
“You know when you come out and say there was a player kicked… That's not true. That’s not true at all.” – @CoachUrbanMeyer@dandakich talks to #UrbanMeyer on what it means to push as a coach in 2021, taking responsibility, and owning what you DID, and DID NOT do! pic.twitter.com/VXNBQGifvX

Prior to his firing, former Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo accused Meyer of kicking him and berating him at practice, but the head coach continues to adamantly deny those reports.
“I certainly did not [kick Lambo],” Meyer said. “To kick someone? Come on. I’ve done this 37 years. Kick a player? The other players came up to me and said, ‘We saw the whole thing.’”
