Doyle, who was on the workers on the University of Iowa from 1999-2019, was positioned on administrative go away by the varsity in June after a number of former Iowa gamers accused him of racism. Shortly after, the college and Doyle agreed to half methods.
However, Meyer, who was employed by the Florida-based staff in January after the staff fired Doug Marrone, defended the hire, saying that his relationship with Doyle goes again 20 years.
“I vet everyone on our staff, and like I said, the relationship goes back close to 20 years and a lot of hard questions asked, a lot of vetting involved with all our staff. We did a very good job vetting that one.”
Meyer previously coached within the faculty ranks on the University of Utah, University of Florida, and most lately at Ohio State.
Among the opposite hires that Meyer made on his first NFL workers embrace former Detroit Lions interim head coach Darrell Bevell as offensive coordinator and Joe Cullen as defensive coordinator.
