Urban Meyer tweets statement, says he has always followed proper procedures

Urban Meyer is no longer staying silent.

The embattled head coach at Ohio State, who is on paid administrative leave, took to Twitter and his various other social media platforms on Friday afternoon to release a statement on all that has unfolded in Columbus the past few days.

In the statement, Meyer directly addresses several key points that have surfaced regarding what he knew and when with regards to several alleged domestic violence allegations against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith. Meyer firmly notes that he has followed school protocols and procedures at all times and specifically did so regarding the 2015 incident that has taken center stage in this unfolding drama.

It’s also notable that Meyer addressed his comments at Big Ten Media Days last month by apologizing for the way he handled things and that he “failed” on many fronts by addressing the story.

An investigation remains ongoing by the school into the entire matter and Meyer reiterated that he would cooperate fully.
