The Urban Meyer era in Jacksonville didn’t last one full season.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the team decided to fire Meyer on Wednesday night.

News of Meyer’s firing came hours after former Jags kicker Josh Lambo accused Meyer of kicking him in practice.

“I’m in a lunge position,” “Left leg forward, right leg back. . . . Urban Meyer, while I’m in that stretch position, comes up to me and says, ‘Hey, Dipshit, make your f–king kicks!’ And kicks me in the leg.”

“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.’”

Update: Jaguars owner Shad Khan made it official in a statement.
