Zach Smith: Ohio State firing Urban Meyer would be ‘flat wrong’

Former Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith broke his silence, and he made it clear that Urban Meyer was aware of his incidents in 2015.

In an interview with ESPN’s Dan Murphy on Friday, Smith defended himself in regards to situations where he was never charged with a crime and stood behind Meyer — despite being fired by the Buckeyes last month.

“I’d be heartbroken for Ohio State, for the players, for him and his family because it’s not right,” Zach Smith said. “It’s not. If that happens, it’s dead wrong. Coming from someone who knows. I was at all the meetings, I knew exactly what he knew. I knew exactly what he did. If he loses his job, it’s flat wrong. And this is a guy who fired me.”

Really hoping that turns out to be the case and anxious to see what the investigative board concludes.

Had this been an assistant coach for Alabama, and the circumstances were exactly the same, ESPN reporters would say the following: “I don’t know how Nick Saban, with all he has on his plate running the greatest football program in the country, could have taken time out of his rigorous schedule to investigate something like this which happened waaaaay back in 2015, and falls directly on the shoulders of the Tuscaloosa PD. After their thorough investigation it is obvious this situation did not involve an arrest or charges being field, so what else could the most legendary coach in all… Read more »
