The brother of fired Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith took to Twitter on Saturday night to post a revealing message about everything that's happened with his brother, Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes' football program.

Smith, of course, was fired by Ohio State in July following the filing of a domestic violence protection order. His ex-wife, Courtney Smith, alleges that he committed domestic violence against her on multiple occasions. She told all in an interview with college football insider Brett McMurphy.

McMurphy's story led to the placing of head coach Urban Meyer on paid administrative leave. He was later suspended for the first three games of the season following an investigation.

Smith's brother took to Twitter on Saturday night to post a lengthy message addressing the situation.

He makes one thing clear: He claims his brother, Zach, never committed domestic violence against Courtney Smith.

"This is the last post I will make about all that has gone on," he wrote.

Zach Smith and his ex-wife, Courtney Smith, will have their day in court in September. We'll likely learn more about what actually happened then.

Urban Meyer, meanwhile, can't return to the sideline until Ohio State's Week 4 game. The Buckeyes open the season against Oregon State Week 1. Ryan Day is coaching the team in Meyer's absence.
