The Jacksonville Jaguars reportedly fired Urban Meyer for cause.  He was in the first year of a five year contract and because he was fired for cause they don't intend on paying the remainder of his contract.

From ESPN:

The Jacksonville Jaguars fired their former head coach Urban Meyer for cause, sources tell ESPN, with the intention of not paying him the remaining four years of his contract.

A source within the organization said the Jaguars' reasons for withholding the remaining guarantees are not tied to one specific incident -- but rather a cumulation of instances that Jacksonville's officials believe justified the firing.

Running a franchise into the ground isn't enough.  Staying behind on a road trip to get a lap dance at a bar from a woman who isn't your wife and kicking players certainly is.

If we've learned anything about Urban Meyer over the years it's he doesn't go down without a fight.  No matter the evidence stacked up against him.

This will be settled by lawyers, hopefully for a much lower amount than he is owed.
