NFL coach Urban Meyer’s daughter Gigi goes public with family’s ‘truth’ video with mystery woman

Urban Meyer is ready to move on. So are his players and his family.

The Jacksonville Jaguars coach publicly apologised for the third consecutive day on Wednesday and said he never considered resigning after his “inexcusable” behavior at an Ohio bar was caught on camera and released on social media.

Meyer added that several members of the team’s leadership council, a group of players who serve as liaisons between the coach and the locker room, have expressed their support.

“I had at least eight to 10 phone calls where they called me and they were over-the-top supportive and said ‘we got you, man, move forward’,” Meyer said.

“A common thing was ‘coach, we all did stupid things’. I’m really impressed with our guys.”

Team owner Shad Khan publicly reprimanded the 57-year-old Meyer on Tuesday for his actions at the bar last weekend.

Meyer said they had three or four conversations in which Khan told Meyer he must regain everyone’s trust and respect.

Meyer said “the message is loud and clear”.

His family, meanwhile, seems ready to move on. Meyer sounded as if he and his wife Shelley are going to be fine.

“I don’t want to get into our personal life, but 37 years we’ve been together and it’s been awesome, man,” he said.

“And this speed bump’s not going to get in the way of that.”

His youngest daughter, Gigi, also went public to show her support.

“We’re good. As a family, we’re good,” Gigi Meyer posted in an Instagram story.

“The reality of it is as much as our lives might seems different than everybody else’s, we’re still human. We have human things that we deal with, and this is one of those things.

“But the good news is we know my dad and we know his character, and he’s literally the most incredible person I know in my entire life and I still hold true to that truth.

“That is my truth. Doesn’t have to be your truth, but that is my truth and I am sticking to it. We’ve all decided we’re going to move on. We’re moving on, and life is good.”

Meyer’s troubles started on Friday at his own restaurant/bar, Urban Meyer’s Pint House, in Dublin, Ohio.

Meyer made the odd decision to stay behind in his hometown state following Jacksonville’s 24-21 loss at Cincinnati on Thursday and had dinner with his family the next night.

Meyer said he ended up joining a party next door and was later captured on camera with a young woman.

One clip showed the woman dancing close to Meyer’s lap as he sits on a bar stool. A second, more damning video appears to show Meyer touching the woman’s behind.

Meyer apologised to players in respective position groups on Monday and said he was sorry again during his weekly radio show on Tuesday.

He offered another apology during a team meeting on Wednesday, saying he let down his family and his players.

“I know most of the team feels this way – he’s still my head coach. I still respect him, regardless of what happens,” rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence said.

“Like I said, we’re a team and we’re figuring it out. So, yeah, we’re all good.”

Added third-year linebacker Josh Allen: “He has owned it, just like we all do. He’s a great coach, he’s a great man and he’s gonna bounce back and we all gonna bounce back.

“We’re going to play even harder for him, you know I’m saying? We’re ready to play. He’s got our back, and we’re going to have his back. That’s how we going.”

The Jaguars (0-4) host Tennessee (2-2) on Sunday, trying to end a 19-game losing streak that is tied for the second longest in NFL history.
