Zach Smith’s annual base salary only increased $6,600 – by far the lowest annual raise of his career – following the 2015 season, the year he was investigated for domestic violence and felonious assault against Courtney Smith.
The $6,600 increase was the lowest in his six-year career at Ohio State, according to documents provided by the school.
By contrast, he received his largest raises of his career the season before the domestic violence investigations – $50,000 before the 2015 season – and also the year after the investigations – $73,400 before the 2017 season…
According to university documents, Zach Smith’s 2017 staff performance review, under overall comments it lists “Positive:” and “Work on:”
Under “Work on,” the fifth item is “Personal Matters”
It is the only reference to any non-football related items on Smith’s staff performance review. [Emphasis added.]
Probably a mere coincidence. Just ask Corch.
I wonder what’s coming next.
