Gosh, look who’s back in the news.
Zach Smith was arrested on Thursday by the Delaware County Sherriff’s Office for violating a Civil Protection Order. The former Ohio State wide receivers coach became confrontational with staff at Scioto Ridge Elementary when they did not allow him to pick up his children. He was arrested and taken to the Delaware County Jail, the Toledo Blade’s Kyle Rowland first reported.
Smith was charged with violating the CPO, which is a misdemeanor. He will be arraigned at 10 a.m. Friday.
Corch sure can pick ’em.
How this clown managed to stay on a coaching staff as long as he did is a testament to administrative tolerance and stubborn blindness.
UPDATE: Zach Smith’s lawyer has been and is definitely still a douche bag.
Zach Smith’s attorney, Brad Koffel, told WSYX-TV in Columbus, “Same old, same old. Absolutely malicious move by his ex-wife to have Zach arrested at their kids’ school when he was there to pick them up. She’s in contempt of court for not giving him the kids last night which she was supposed to. Just very sad for the children. 100% avoidable by both of them.”
Man who hired Corch after the his first walk away from the game has “a hard time believing” he’ll coach again.
What’s the over/under on that shelf life?
Clearly, no one has ever told Zach Smith about the Rule of Holes.
The Rule of Assholes, though… yeah, he’s pretty up to speed on that one.
Why do I have the feeling this isn’t going to end particularly well?
Fox has signed what it feels, as one source put it, is a “Mount Rushmore of college football over the last 15 years,” for its new, yet-to-be-named Saturday morning pregame show that will air on network TV.
Sources say Fox has hired former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer and one of the greatest running backs in the college game’s history, Reggie Bush, for its new team.
… Fox feels with Meyer, Bush, Leinart and Quinn, it has put together a similar team of college football legends and hopes they can develop a fun chemistry.
Sure, because the first word that pops into everyone’s mind when you say “Urban Meyer” is fun.
Although, now that I think about it, Corch and Thom Brennaman reminiscing about the GPOOE™ could be a real hoot. In a nauseating sort of way, that is.
I don’t care how distasteful you find the current state of football transfers — tell me you wouldn’t have enjoyed this playing out publicly.
Former Ohio State quarterback Tate Martell was in the process of crafting a transfer waiver appeal last year while with the Buckeyes, citing Urban Meyer’s three-game suspension as a reason, multiple sources have told CBS Sports.
It is not believed Martell ultimately filed the appeal with the NCAA and may have been advised against it. Last season, Martell stayed for his redshirt freshman campaign as a backup for Heisman Trophy finalist Dwayne Haskins.
It’s not clear if Meyer’s suspension was the sole reason Martell considering an appeal. Meyer was suspended before the season for what the school called “insufficient management action” regarding former Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith.
Granting a transfer waiver because Corch is a dick seems like a slam dunk to me.
Oh, FFS. Haven’t we suffered enough already?
Sports TV viewers may see a lot more of Urban Meyer on TV this year than they thought they would. Fox Sports is close to finalizing a deal to hire the former Ohio State head coach as its star college football analyst, sources tell Sporting News.
Meyer, who won three national championships between Ohio State and Florida, is being given the choice to work either as a color commentator in the game booth or as a studio analyst at Fox, sources said. Citing serious health concerns, the 54-year-old Buckeyes coach retired after the 2019 Rose Bowl.
A Fox Sports spokeswoman declined comment to Sporting News Thursday night.
Fox just wrapped its most-watched college football regular season ever. The network envisions Meyer as the kind of big-time coaching name/TV talent who could potentially put its “Fox College Football Pregame” show on par with Kirk Herbstreit’s “College GameDay” at ESPN.
Cool. Maybe Corch and Thom Brennaman can reminisce fondly about the GPOOE™.
If CBS ever loses the SEC to Fox, I’m gonna be one bummed mofo.
