Former Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith, who was fired by the Buckeyes this summer, has had multiple Twitter rants over the past couple of months. Tonight, he's having another one and Texas head coach Tom Herman is the focal point.

Smith, in a series of tweets, has gone off on Herman and his wife. Smith and Herman were both assistants at Ohio State under Urban Meyer and reportedly did recruiting trips together.

The fired Ohio State assistant has accused the Texas head coach of cheating on his wife, among other things.

"How do (Tom Herman) and (Michelle Herman) feelin after their horrendously underperforming season? Better question - How does she feel about her husband being the biggest shitbag in America!! Doesn’t want to ruin her own life? Just like she told my ex.. I’m done being quiet MICHELLE," he wrote.

"Hey (Michelle Herman) - remember when you had (Tom Herman) text me that you’re “not afraid” of me. You should be afraid. Because I know everything you told my ex and I know everything your shitbag husband has done... so be afraid. Because I know the #TRUTH."

He continued:

"Hey Brett McMurphy - report this. I witnessed Tom Herman cheat on his wife (Michelle Herman ) several times... once at an Asian massage parlor... and just texted him that I’m done protecting him. We gonna be “honest” now!? Or nah... LMAO."

Herman appeared to respond to some of Smith's text messages:

The Hermans were linked to the Zach Smith-Courtney Smith controversy back in the summer. One report suggested that the Hermans were Brett McMurphy's source, though that was shot down. It was later confirmed that the Hermans did help Courtney Smith with some legal payments. “It is absolutely untrue,” Herman told the American-Statesman via spokesman. “Neither I, nor anybody in my family, has ever communicated with Brett McMurphy about the situation at Ohio State.” “In March of 2017, my wife assisted her friend Courtney Smith during a time of financial need,” Herman told the Statesman. “We have not provided any financial assistance since then.” Meanwhile, you can view all of Smith's tweets

Remember when you were with an a Asian massuese? Because I dooooooooo.... @CoachTomHerman - you’re the biggest snitch alive... and also the biggest hypocrite alive. Anyone wanna know all that I know about Tommy Boy? Contact me. Lmao
