Brett McMurphy gives prediction on Urban Meyer
Right before the start of B1G Media Days, college football insider Brett McMurphy released a bombshell report that put Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer under a microscope.
Now, with Meyer on administrative leave as the university investigates his alleged knowledge of domestic violence accusations involving former assistant coach Zach Smith, there’s some uncertainty about the head coach’s future.
Friday morning, McMurphy made an appearance on the Open Mike Show with Mike Bianchi in Orlando and he (kind of) gave a prediction on how the situation involving Meyer turns out.
“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,” McMurphy said. “So does that mean that they’re embarrassed by the 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.”
McMurphy has provided numerous updates about Meyer and Smith over the last few weeks, adding new details from the original story.
