Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer made headlines on Saturday night when footage showing him in a precarious state went viral.
In the clip, Meyer could be seen seemingly getting handsy with a pretty young woman who wasn’t his wife.
The video was largely self-explanatory, but it did leave some room for interpretation.
Fortunately, a new video from a different angle can settle any and all doubts regarding what Meyer was doing with his hand to the woman in question.

After Meyer’s clip went supernova viral, his longtime wife responded to it on Twitter. Then on Monday, the Jaguars coach came out and apologized for having become a distraction.

“I just apologized to the team and staff for being a distraction,” Meyer said. “Just stupid, and so I explained everything that happened and owned it. Just stupid. Should not have myself in that kind of position.”
To hear the Jaguars coach tell it, he was simply the victim of circumstance.
“There was a big group next [to] our restaurant and they wanted me to come over and take pictures, and I did,” Meyer said. “They were trying to pull me out on the dance floor, screwing around, and I should have left.”

Can Meyer change his fortunes around? Sure. But at the moment, his NFL career looks doomed to fail.
