Meyer added that he’s had at least three or four conversations with Jaguars owner Shad Khan and “the message is loud and clear.” Meyer says team leaders have shown him support and they are looking forward to their game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

“I had at least eight to 10 phone calls where they called me and they were over-the-top supportive and said, ‘We got you, man. Move forward,’” Meyer said. “A common thing was, ‘Coach, we all did stupid things.’ I’m really impressed with our guys.”

The coach was caught on camera being intimate with a blonde woman. The woman was dancing close to Meyer’s lap in one clip. And in another, it appeared that Meyer touched the woman’s behind.

Khan publicly said Meyer’s behavior was “inexcusable.” Meyer apologized again on Wednesday to the team owner, as well as the fans. He held a full team meeting after explaining what happened to players Monday in individual position groups.

“I wanted to get in their space,” Meyer said. “I have a good relationship with this whole team. I’m not a big team meeting guy. I do a lot of it that way, where I’ll go to the running backs, where there’s a group of four. Team meetings are very … it’s just a big environment.

“In my opinion, you don’t get much done in a team meeting. You get a lot done when you’re in personal space with people. I’ve always done that.”
