In other words he's back on his bullshit.

Controversy seems to follow Urban Meyer wherever he goes.  He's already facing it in Jacksonville and he hasn't even coached his first Jaguars game.

Meyer made the controversial hire of former Iowa strength coach Chris Doyle as the team's director of sports performance.  Doyle was accused of making racist remarks and bullying players.

From ESPN:

"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."

Have no worries, Urban did a lot of vetting.  He's really good at that and covering up any issues with members of his coaching staff.  So everything should be just fine, nothing to see here.
