Former Jaguars kicker accuses Urban Meyer of kicking him

Former Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo told the Tampa Bay Times that coach Urban Meyer once kicked him during practice.

Lambo missed a field goal in each of his first two exhibition games and was stretching at practice as the team prepared to face the Cowboys in the final preseason game.

“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—, make your f——g kicks.’ And kicks me in the leg.”

Lambo added Meyer didn’t call specialists by their names.

“It was ‘kicker, punter, long snapper,’” Lambo told the Tampa Bay Times. “Or s—bag, dips— or whatever the hell it was.”

“‘Don’t you ever f—ing kick me again,’” Lambo recalled saying. “And his response was, ‘I’m the head ball coach, I’ll kick you whenever the f— I want.’”

Meyer denied the incident played out that way. Both player and coach said there were people around to corroborate their respective sides of the story.

“Josh’s characterization of me and this incident is completely inaccurate, and there are eyewitnesses to refute his account,” Meyer told the Tampa Bay Times. “[General manager] Trent [Baalke] and I met with him on multiple occasions to encourage his performance, and this was never brought up.”

Lambo said the day after the alleged incident, Meyer approached him while in the nutritional aisle at the team’s training facility.
