Former Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith broke his silence, and he made it clear that Urban Meyer was aware of his incidents in 2015.

In an interview with ESPN’s Dan Murphy on Friday, Smith defended himself in regards to situations where he was never charged with a crime and stood behind Meyer — despite being fired by the Buckeyes last month.

“I’d be heartbroken for Ohio State, for the players, for him and his family because it’s not right,” Zach Smith said. “It’s not. If that happens, it’s dead wrong. Coming from someone who knows. I was at all the meetings, I knew exactly what he knew. I knew exactly what he did. If he loses his job, it’s flat wrong. And this is a guy who fired me.”
