Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer, who recently balked at an opportunity to lead the Texas Longhorns, is taking flack after hiring former Iowa Hawkeyes strength and conditioning coach Chris Doyle, who was accused over the summer of making racist comments. From ESPN’s report yesterday: “[It] was the hiring of Doyle, who had been Iowa’s director of strength and conditioning from 1999 until this past June, that drew the most attention. Over the past year numerous former Iowa players spoke out about mistreatment within the Iowa program. A number of Black players said that Doyle used racist language and treated them differently based on their race. Meyer said he researched Doyle, had some intense conversations with him, and is confident that there will not be problems.”

Perhaps Texas dodged a bullet by not hiring Meyer after all.
