The mother of a woman in the middle of one NFL Video Scandal says she is worried about her daughter after the footage of the 24-year-old dancing with a coach went viral.
Jacksonville Jaguars coach Urban Meyer found himself in a storm on social media after footage of him with the woman spread like wildfire across the internet.

The 57-year-old was already facing greater control after Jaguar’s windless start, but that attention was intensified after a video of Meyer dancing with a woman in a bar went viral.
The video showed Meyer sitting at the bar of the Urban Chophouse restaurant in Ohio while a woman who was not his wife danced on top of him.
Meyer said the video had left family members “angry” over him, and the coach was forced to apologize for his actions, which have been the talk of American football for the past few days.
The young lady in the footage has also found herself at the center of an ugly storm in which her mother admits she is concerned about the 24-year-old’s mental well-being.
“(She) can not even go anywhere. It’s ruining her life what it does, ”her mother told USA Today Sports.
“I’m worried about her emotional status right now.”
The identity of the 24-year-old woman is not disclosed due to the backlash the family has received since the footage went viral.
The decline has also affected the woman’s employers, New Horizon Media Group, which has launched an internal investigation into the incident.
The woman’s mother said she hoped the company “does not fire” her daughter over the scandal because she “just bought a house”.
A lawyer for the firm said it “would conduct our internal investigation to determine what impact this may have on the firm and we will proceed accordingly”.
It is unknown if the woman in the video had a previous relationship with Meyer.
Meyer has apologized to various groups since the video went viral, and on Wednesday morning he allegedly apologized to the entire team for his actions.

“I just apologized to the team and staff for being a distraction,” Meyer said.
“I explained everything that happened and owned it. Just stupid, should not have myself in that kind of position.”
While it was generally not a good look for Meyer, it was also remarkable that he was still in Ohio – he was a very successful coach at Ohio State – while his team is still undefeated this season.
He said he “stayed to see the grandchildren and we all went to dinner that night,” and there was a large group next to theirs.
“They wanted me to come by and take pictures, and I did,” Meyer said. “They’re trying to pull me out on the dance floor and screw around I should have left.”
Meyer said the players were receptive to his apology.
He said he spoke one-on-one with the Jaguars’ leaders as well as with the entire team.
Meyer’s family has also tackled the scandal on social media, where his wife Shelley wrote on her page deleted Twitter account: “This will be my last post on Twitter. Honestly, I do not need the hatred, vitriol, slander, garbage that will @ me. We all make mistakes. We are all sinners. If you think you are not? Then throw the first stone. ”
Meyer’s daughter Gigi also confirmed that the family was “on” from the dispute and is still in a good place despite the huge recall.
“We all decided we should move on, okay?” Gigi said on her Instagram story.
“We are moving forward and life is good. We are blessed. I have the most incredible family in the whole world. ”
