Urban Meyer isn’t a happy coach because someone in the Jaguars camp has been leaking inside information. According to Urban, who is pissed off about the snitch, he will fire him or her when caught. I understand him perfectly. Leaking inside information to outsiders shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Via Total Pro Sports:
After Sunday’s game, the first-year NFL coach lashed out when asked about fixing the Jaguars’ struggles. “What’s the answer?” Meyer rhetorically asked. “Starting leaking some information or nonsense? That’s garbage. If there is a source, then that source is unemployed. I mean, within seconds.”
On Sunday, the Jaguars were shut out 20-0 by the Tennessee Titans. According to a report from Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, Meyer recently called out his assistant coaches in a staff meeting, challenging them to explain what they’ve ever won.
From NFL Network:
During a staff meeting, Meyer delivered a biting message that he’s a winner and his assistant coaches are losers, according to several people informed of the contents of the meeting, challenging each coach individually to explain when they’ve ever won and forcing them to defend their résumés.
Tom Pelissero added that:
Several Jaguars players vented their frustration to Rams players after that game, sources say, reiterating a common complaint that Meyer — who had no prior NFL experience — doesn’t treat them like adults. And the staff meeting follows a pattern of tense interactions between Meyer and his assistants dating back to the offseason. After opening the preseason with consecutive losses, for instance, sources say Meyer informed assistants that he was sick of being embarrassed and if the team didn’t start winning immediately, some of them wouldn’t be around for a second year.
It’s a difficult time for Urban Meyer.
Meyer was so disgusted after Jacksonville’s loss on Sunday that he barely shook Mike Vrabel’s hand — even though the Titans’ head coach worked under Urban at Ohio State.
