Tide’s Geno Smith tweets apology following latest arrest
Smith did not participate in practice Saturday, in large part because he was still jailed around the time his teammates began yet another spring session.
Head coach Nick Saban did not address the latest development involving an experienced piece of his secondary, although that’s expected to happen early this coming week. Ahead of that, a contrite Smith took to Twitter to apologize to the university, the football program and its fans for his latest off-field misstep.
Whether it’s enough to help avoid the full wrath of Saban -- and maintain a spot on the roster for his final season -- remains to be seen.
I apologize to the University of Alabama , the football program and all the Alabama fans.— Geno Matias-Smith (@matias_geno24) March 29, 2015
