Urban Meyer’s first year as an NFL head coach is going about as bad as many thought it would.
Their 2-10 record isn’t even the worst thing going on as NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported on Meyer’s attitude, approach, and coaching style have led to “multiple run-ins” with players and coaches in recent weeks. Meyer has reportedly berated his coaching staff, gotten into a public fight with a player, and gave a ridiculous punishment to one of the team’s best players while giving preferential treatment to one of his old Ohio State players.
“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.”
Just last week, Meyer chose to bench running back James Robinson, which had the RB calling him out over it.
Not only that, Trevor Lawrence came out in support of his running back over the benching.
