Trevor Lawrence expressed support for Urban Meyer on Wednesday amid the Jacksonville Jaguars head coach’s controversy at an Ohio bar over the weekend where a woman was seen dancing near his lap.

While Jaguars team owner Shad Khan said Meyer must “regain our trust and respect,” Lawrence said Meyer was still his head coach and he still had respect for him.

Meyer addressed the team and Lawrence said the meeting went well.

“I thought that was great. I thought he did a really good job, handled it well, just was upfront with us and I think that was the best way to handle it, which he did. I think that’s where you can go, ‘Alright, next. Let’s move on.’ We have to keep working and get better and that’s what we’re doing, so I think we’re in a good spot as a team,” he added.

The Jaguars are mired in scandal over the video, but a win could put everything behind them.
