“In 2009 Zach Smith was an intern – a very young couple. We’re certainly not going to investigate. It came back to me that what was reported wasn’t actually what happened. 2015 – I got a text late last night something happened in 2015. And there was nothing. Once again – there’s nothing — once again I don’t know who creates a story like that. I try not to operate – especially when you’re talking about personnel and people – making decisions on things because it became public. But to say that doesn’t have something to do with it – it does a little bit. You’re talking about people’s lives et cetera.”
THESE are the LIES Urban Meyer told you that caused him to be forced to STEP-DOWN as head coach at Ohio State.
I was certainly not going to investigate back in 2009 when I was the head coach of the Florida Gators and Zach Smith worked for me there as a coach after being one of my players on my team when I coached at Bowling Green. Yes Zach Smith was charged with felony domestic abuse several times including while he and I were at Florida. But it came back to ME that what was reported wasn’t what actually happened. Then in 2015 when it all surfaced again here at Ohio State – again THERE WAS NOTHING to it. Not true. I don’t know who creates a story like this. What kind of bullshit reporting would lead to reporting that something that NEVER HAPPENED in fact was what happened.
