Most of the coaches on the staff in 2015 are gone. Larry Johnson, DL coach, was on the staff in 2015. Would not be surprised to see some of the football operations personnel who followed Urban from Florida gone or at least questioned about the incident.I think you're right. This afternoon is going to be very interesting.
Are any other of their assistant coaches at risk? Who else was tight with this serial abuser and came with Urban from his old Florida staff?
I also agree that Schiano is probably going to take over as interim head coach.
I might tend to agree, but there is no way he can say he mispoke. He denied it several times and said had he known he would have fired him in 2015. I don't think he can walk his statement back. Now, what tOSU decides to do is TBD.There will likely be a statement with some combination of misspeaking, misremembering, or misinterpreting the question along with giving the guy a 2nd chance which he failed and thus was fired. He will likely admit that not firing the guy in 2015 was a mistake. He will be on the opposing sideline when we play them. Dantonio and Izzo both survived worse circumstances.
No. He's done because he's known about it for years and didn't do anything about it.Urban Meyer is done at Ohio State for another coach on his staff abusing his wife? You must be kidding.
All coaches with fantastic success records. Also, all coaches that are huge assholes who got caught doing something wrong.During my life THE Ohio State has had Woody Hayes, Jim Tressel, and Urban Meyer. I don't think there's another school out there that could come close to a disgraceful record like that.
I hadn't seen the video yet. I think he will be retained, but will have some hoops to jump through.No. He's done because he's known about it for years and didn't do anything about it.
Rephrase what you just said, but replace the following:
1.) Urban Meyer with Joe Paterno
2.) Ohio with Penn
3.) "his wife" with "children"
That is why he should be fired.
From the story:From this article, Urban and the AD are meeting currently or soon it sounds like...
Schiano and Wilson have baggage of their own that administration might not want highlighted in the midst of another scandal, but ya, they seem like the obvious choices initially that asideI live in Columbus. I would expect OSU to come out with some statement this afternoon. The players report for fall camp tomorrow. This has to be resolved now. I would not be surprised if a change is made. Schiano would probably be named as an interim coach. Kevin Wilson would also be considered. I have no inside information just my gut feeling.
They've been covering up for this kind of stuff long before the golden age of Facebook and Twitter. In fact, it was a lot worse in the past. But don't let that stop you from shaking your finger.This country has become morally bankrupt! The constant covering up of these types of scandals in athletics, politics, business and government is insane!
Yep hard to let someone go for ignoring spousal abuse and then turn around and hire someone involved in covering up crimes against children or someone accused of abusing his players.Schiano and Wilson have baggage of their own that administration might not want highlighted in the midst of another scandal, but ya, they seem like the obvious choices initially that aside
No, the Tressel scandal went way beyond free tattoos. It showed a program that was completely without oversight.I think Meyer is out. OSU fired Tressel for covering up free tattoos. They will have no choice but to can him for a much more egregious act of covering up domestic violence.
The thing that is blowing my mind right now is Brett isn't even employed by ESPN, FOX, CBSSports, ANYbody and it's now just starting to make national headlines. Dude is straight slaying the consumer-direct communication model.
If you look at it that way, it could actually be worse if Myer didn't know. That would mean dozens of people, including assistant coaches and his own wife hid this from him, to either protect an abuser and/or continue winning games.No, the Tressel scandal went way beyond free tattoos. It showed a program that was completely without oversight.
ESPN basically isn't even covering it, probably because their former employee broke the story.The thing that is blowing my mind right now is Brett isn't even employed by ESPN, FOX, CBSSports, ANYbody and it's now just starting to make national headlines. Dude is straight slaying the consumer-direct communication model.
So now my question is, if Meyer and OSU "part ways" there is no way in hell Buckeye fans going to accept Kevin Wilson or Greg Schiano as their head coach. Who will the next coach be?
