Smith appeared on CBS Sports Radio’s “Lo spettacolo di Zach Gelb” e ha cercato di esprimere a parole come si sentiva nei confronti di Meyer all'indomani del suo licenziamento. Smith said he was very supportive of the decision to hire Meyer in the first place.
“I’m angry because I was a cheerleader for Urban Meyer and now I look like, sai, I got egg on my face,” Smith ha detto.
Smith was a five-time Pro Bowler with the Jaguars. Lui aveva 862 catture per 12,287 cantieri e 67 touchdown. He said the Jaguars community was “fearful” about potentially having wasted a year of Trevor Lawrence’s career.
He was asked what he would say to Meyer if he was able to have a conversation with him.
“If I could have one? I don’t want no conversation. After seeing that video, I’m embarrassed. intendo, that’s bad,” Smith ha detto.
The Jaguars fired Meyer following a tumultuous week marred by reports of in-house problems and a blowout loss against the Tennessee Titans. Al tempo, owner Shad Khan said the organization wasn’t rushing to any decision and would do “the right thing for the team” after careful consideration.
That decision came much sooner than expected after former kicker Josh Lambo came forward with a story on Wednesday regarding an incident back in August where he claimed that Meyer kicked him in the leg during warmups.
Jaguars officials told ESPN there was no one incident the team could point to that was the last straw and called it a “cumulation of instances.”
