“I just apologized to the team and staff for being a distraction,“Just stupid and so I explained everything that happened and owned it. Just stupid. Should not have put myself in that kind of position.”
“I stayed to see the grandkids and we all went to the dinner that night,” he said. “There was a big group next to our restaurant and they wanted me to come over and take pictures, and I did. They were trying to pull me out on the dance floor, screwing around, and I should have left.”
During the latest edition of ESPN NFL Live, both Spears and Orlovsky called for Meyer to be fired after his latest scandal.

Spears: “Shad Khan you need to find yourself a new head coach bruh, it’s time for Urban Meyer to be dismissed and relieved of his duties. This is not the first distraction…He brought in a strength coach that had racist history, he brought in Tim Tebow to play tight end which he never did in the NFL before, this is a pattern that we’ve seen go on since Urban Meyer has been the coach in Jacksonville. And then this particular situation with a young quarterback, first pick, just married, 0-4 trying to win football games, and the coach is the exact wrong reason why they’re in the news.”
Orlovsky: “It’s hard for you to lead me when you can’t lead yourself. How can I sit in here in the locker room and listen to you preach about culture when you do things like this, my success is completely dependent on your ability to lead our organization and if you can’t lead yourself to consistently make the proper decisions then how can I trust me career with you, how can I trust that you’re going to do what’s best for me and all of my teammates. I don’t’ want to sit in the locker room and hear you talk about doing the right things. I dont want sit in the locker room and preach about culture, changing things…We’re 0-4 and you constantly want me to do the right things when you can’t…I agree I don’t want you as my head coach anymore.”
