Katie Nolan Ripped Urban Meyer, Ohio State On Her New Show

Katie Nolan jokes on her new ESPN show.


Urban Meyer had a tumultuous offseason, winding up suspended for Ohio State's first three games as a result of the way he handled domestic violence allegations against former assistant Zach Smith. This week, Katie Nolan made a joke at his expense on her new show.

Nolan, who ESPN hired last year, has a new ESPN+ show called Always Late with Katie Nolan. While the network is still nailing down the format, it's clear that it includes sarcastic jokes - which are Nolan's specialty.

Nolan's shot at Urban Meyer can be read below:

"With two games remaining against Cleveland the Bengals hired former Browns coach Hue Jackson as a special assistant to Marvin Lewis.

Lewis wanted to get the worst possible advice from a football coach in Ohio, but Urban Meyer was busy."

Here's the clip:

It's a safe bet the joke won't go over well in Columbus, but it will probably land in Ann Arbor.

Ohio State, meanwhile, is 9-1 with a date against Maryland on Saturday before hosting Michigan in the regular season finale next week. Meyer's Buckeyes can still make the playoff if they win out - and get a little help.
