Urban Meyer would like you to believe that he retired from Ohio State University because he was old and sick or whatever but in actuality, he left because one of his assistant coaches was beating the brakes off his wife and Urban didn’t care and didn’t want to be bothered with the whole situation so he left.
Last month he tricked the Jacksonville Jaguars into giving him his first NFL head coaching job and what did Meyer do with this gift? He immediately hired a guy who was fired from Iowa this year after being responsible for creating a culture of abuse and racism. Nice work, coach!!!
Iowa players came out and said that Chris Doyle, the strength and conditioning coach, was just straight up racist. An Iowa player claimed Doyle said this to him out of nowhere: “maybe you should take up rowing or something you know? Oh wait, Black people don’t like boats in water, do they?”
Coach sir…you…you can’t say that to anyone and especially not black teens when you’re the adult in the room.
College football culture is the dumbest shit.
The head coach shouts and dehumanizes you. The defensive coordinator shouts and dehumanizes you. The linebacker coach shouts and dehumanizes you. And then the fucking strength and conditioning coach just says weird racist nonsense at you after you can’t do one more rep on the bench press. Oh, and then you have calculus homework to do that night.
Another player went on Twitter and posted that Doyle once said to him “why you walkin wit all that swagger? I’ll put you back in the streets”.
Again, this is the STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING coach that Urban Meyer immediately hired the second he got the Jaguars job. Imagine being the lowest coach on the totem pole and still behaving as if you are a white savior that rescued these poor negros and allowed them to be in your presence.
Here’s what Urban Meyer said about hiring the man who was recently fired for being racist:
“I vet everyone on our staff, and like I said the relationship goes back close to 20 years and a lot of hard questions asked, a lot of vetting involved with all our staff,” Meyer said. “We did a very good job vetting that one.
“… I met with our staff and I’m going to be very transparent with all the players like I am with everything. I’ll listen closely and learn and also there’s going to have to be some trust in their head coach that we’re going to give them the very best of the best and time will tell. … The allegations that took place, I will say [to the players] I vetted him. I know the person for close to 20 years and I can assure them there will be nothing of any sort in the Jaguar facility.”
We keep pretending to not understand why black coaches never get hired while old white dudes hire their friends who are actively anti-black. Urban Meyer knew about the racism and hired him anyway because he’s known him for a while and did him a favor. Just like when he defended his assistant who was hitting his wife.
Chris Doyle has resigned because he should not have been hired in the first place and Urban Meyer gets to go back to pretending like he’s such a great man who did his dear friend a favor. He can pretend to be ignorant and that’s that.
Fuck Urban Meyer.
