Urban Meyer’s attorney reportedly tried to kill the story about him allegedly kicking a former player.

Meyer was fired last week by the Jacksonville Jaguars, and his termination was announced several hours after Rick Stroud published a piece about how the former OSU coach allegedly kicked former kicker Josh Lambo.

During an interview with Rich Eisen, he revealed that he received a “threatening letter” from Meyer’s lawyer about the story before it went live.

“All I can say is when I did the story, they were in crisis mode in Jacksonville. I had a lot of conversations with them. They begged me to hold the story till 4 o’clock. I got a statement from their legal counsel first. I got a threatening letter from his [Urban Meyer’s] attorney about publishing the story without certain information,” Stroud told Eisen during the interview, according to BroBible.

He also added, “The organization is totally dysfunctional. They turned it over to a guy who wasn’t capable of making the transition to the NFL and he in the end I think he got what he deserved.”

Is anyone surprised by this allegation? Is anyone surprised at all that Meyer’s attorney allegedly sent a “threatening letter” to Stroud?

I’m damn sure not. If there’s one thing that will never surprise me, it’s Urban Meyer doing whatever he thinks is necessary to protect his career.

His reputation going all the way back to his Florida days has been that he’s ruthless. The Jeremy Fowler video from his time with the Gators is an all-time classic.

He allegedly told his assistants they were terrible in Jacksonville. You couldn’t make this up if you tried.

With every bit of new information that comes out about Meyer, all I can think about is how awesome the eventual “30 for 30” will be. What an absolutely stunning fall from grace!
