JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A video that appears to show an unknown woman dancing on Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer has gone viral.

One video of the scene, which was purportedly recorded inside an Ohio bar in the past few days, has been viewed nearly half a million times and had Meyer trending on Twitter Sunday morning. A handful of media outlets, including Barstool Sports, New York Daily News and Sports Illustrated, reported on the video.

It wasn’t immediately clear when or where the video was recorded, but other photos posted in recent days appear to show Meyer out for a friend’s birthday party while wearing similar clothes.

Meyer’s wife Shelley appeared to acknowledge her husband was out with his friends in a tweet that used the hashtag “BuddyDeservedANightOut”.

News4Jax asked the Jacksonville Jaguars about the video but the team said it will not be making a statement about it.

Meyer and the Jaguars were in his home state of Ohio on Thursday to take on the Cincinnati Bengals.
