Jaguars owner had message for coaches about media leaks

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been left reeling after allegations regarding Urban Meyer’s treatment of his players and staff leaked. A new report indicates that coaches who may have leaked information that was the source of the report heard from ownership. The message from ownership seemed to echo Meyer’s.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan addressed the team’s coaching staff in person after the report about Meyer went public on Saturday, according to NFL reporter Josina Anderson. While Khan expressed his support for the coaching staff, he made clear he disliked the report going public and warned coaches against leaking stories to the media.

This might not have been the message Jaguars coaches were hoping to hear. While it wasn’t quite as blunt as Meyer’s message on Sunday, it doesn’t sound like Khan’s message was particularly encouraging, either.

Meyer reportedly called his assistant coaches “losers,” which Meyer essentially confirmed himself.

Such a message is especially jarring coming from Meyer, who has won just two NFL games as a head coach. The assistants probably would have liked more backing from Khan than they may have received.
