Zach Smith Tweets For The First Time Since Ohio State Fired Him

zach smith gives an interview on espn

Former Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith has been relatively quiet during this ongoing saga. The fired Buckeyes' coach spoke out a little more than a week ago, giving interviews to ESPN and a Columbus radio station, but hasn't said much outside of that.

Today, Smith took to Twitter to tweet for the first time since he was fired by Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes' program.

It was a simple message:

Today, reports surfaced of an unknown 2013 arrest. Smith was reportedly arrested in 2013 on drunken driving charges. He claims Urban Meyer was not aware of the arrest.

Smith is reportedly set to meet with Ohio State's investigative team at some point this week. Reports suggested he would be asking for his job back.

Ohio State announced last week that its investigation into Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes' program would take two weeks. Meyer has been placed on paid administrative leave for a week and a half.

The Buckeyes are set to open the 2018 season on Sept. 1 against Oregon State. Ryan Day is coaching the team in Meyer's absence.
