Former Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo says Urban Meyer kicked him

Former Jacksonville kicker Josh Lambo says Jaguars coach Urban Meyer kicked him while he was stretching during practice in August, according to an interview with The Tampa Bay Times. Lambo, the fourth-most accurate kicker in NFLhistory, was preparing for the team’s final preseason game against Dallas when Meyer approached him.

“I’m in a lunge position. Left leg forward, right leg back,” Lambo said. “… Urban Meyer, while I’m in that stretch position, comes up to me and says, ‘Hey Dips–t, make your f–king kicks!’ And kicks me in the leg.”

Lambo had missed a kick in each of Jacksonville’s two preseason games to that point.

“It certainly wasn’t as hard as he could’ve done it, but it certainly wasn’t a love tap,” Lambo said. “Truthfully, I’d register it as a five (out of 10). Which in the workplace, I don’t care if it’s football or not, the boss can’t strike an employee.

“And for a second, I couldn’t believe it actually happened. Pardon my vulgarity, I said, ‘Don’t you ever f–king kick me again!’ And his response was, ‘I’m the head ball coach, I’ll kick you whenever the f–k I want.’”

Meyer, in a statement, denied Lambo’s description of the incident.
