The ongoing saga surrounding Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer took a strange turn on Wednesday.
After days of her father getting beaten down and mocked in the media for the original video of him getting grinded on by a blonde and then the enhanced video of him sticking his fingers up her you-know-what, Gigi Meyer Pruitt took to Instagram to address the situation.
In a series of Instagram Stories, Gigi attempted to answer all of the questions everyone had about what transpired.
Here is what she had to say:
“The reality of it is as much of our lives might seem different than everybody else’s we’re still human,” she admitted in the multi-part post. “We have human things that we deal with and this is one of those things, but the good news is we know my dad and we know his character and he’s literally the most incredible person I know in my entire life.”
Now that everything has been litigated and relitigated over the past few days, Gigi just wants to move on.
“We all decided we’re gonna move on, alright?” she continued. “We’re moving on and life is good. We are blessed. I have the most incredible family in the entire world.”
Urban Meyer’s wife, Shelley, for what it’s worth, seems less forgiving.
This week, he attempted to once again apologize for what transpired.
When pressed specifically on the state of his marriage, the Jaguars coach insisted that this “speedbump” won’t impact their 37-year union.
Quarterback Trevor Lawrence also took a moment this week to address the situation.
“He’s still my head coach. We’re a team and we’ll work through this”

“He’s still my head coach,” Lawrence said. “We’re a team and we’ll work through this.”
Urban Meyer’s problems at this point extend beyond just his transgressions. On the football field, his team can’t stop losing. That coupled with his humiliation this past weekend has turned into a situation where players have lost all faith in him and ownership is turning on him.

Obviously he can still bounce back. Anything is possible. But at the moment, it doesn’t look like things are going to get better any time soon.
