What is going to happen to Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer? Former ESPN college football insider Brett McMurphy, who broke the story of Meyer’s knowledge about abuse by former wide receivers coach Zach Smith, has weighed in on the matter.
McMurphy appeared on “Open Mike with Mike Bianchi” on Orland’s 96.9 when he shared his thoughts on what will happen to the Buckeyes head coach.
According to McMurphy, Meyer should expect some sort of punishment from the university — whether it be a suspension or firing.
McMurphy said, as transcribed by TheSpun:
“Everything that I have reported about this throughout the past couple weeks, Ohio State has known about it. They just decided to fire Zach Smith because it went public. So does that mean that they’re embarrassed by this information getting out? Is Urban Meyer ultimately punished for that? My gut – honestly, I have no idea.
“I wouldn’t be surprised – the only decision that Ohio State ultimately makes that I would be surprised by is if there was no punishment. I would be surprised by that.
“If he’s suspended for a number of games or if he’s fired I wouldn’t be surprised. If they simply said “we’ve looked at everything, and he’s our coach. There’s no penalty” That would be the only result that would surprise me.”
Ohio State is expected to make a decision within the next week.
