Urban Meyer Comments On The Aaron Hernandez Verdict

Former Florida and New England Patriots' star Aaron Hernandez was found guilty of first-degree murder on Wednesday. Hernandez, 25, will - save for an appeal - spend the rest of his life in prison. 

Hernandez was coached at Florida by Urban Meyer, who is now the leader of the national championship-winning Ohio State program. 

Meyer, who coached Hernandez from 2007-09, commented on the verdict Thursday afternoon during the Big Ten Coaches Teleconference.
