Jaguars coach Urban Meyer apologized to his team, his family, and owner Shad Khan after a video of a young woman dancing close to his lap at his restaurant in Columbus, Ohio hit the internet.

"I just apologized to the team and staff for being a distraction," Meyer said per ESPN. "Just stupid, and so I explained everything that happened and owned it. Just stupid. Should not have myself in that kind of position."

Meyer said he and family members went to his restaurant on Friday night, and people at a nearby event asked to take photos with him.

"There was a big group next [to] our restaurant and they wanted me to come over and take pictures, and I did," Meyer said. "They were trying to pull me out on the dance floor, screwing around, and I should have left."

A second video appeared of him touching a woman's butt also surfaced.

"I've always been so defensive of them [the players]," Meyer said. "I remember when Trevor [Lawrence] told me he was going to go to Vegas for his bachelor party. I was just like, 'My gosh, man, be careful and surround yourself because I've seen this happen.'"
