Twitter reacts to Urban Meyer being placed on administrative leave
If you logged on Twitter Wednesday, you probably saw multiple accounts you follow tweeting about Urban Meyer.
Reports that contradicted Meyer’s public statements about how much he knew about domestic violence committed by his former assistant had many speculating about whether he would be fired or resign from his job as Ohio State head coach.

On Wednesday afternoon, Meyer and OSU broke their silence in statements revealing he had been placed on administrative leave and OC Ryan Day would take over as active coach.
As you might expect, Twitter was buzzing. News about Meyer is the kind of news that gets a reaction from the Pacific Northwest all the way to the Deep South.
Media members and fans alike had plenty to say. Some shared their assessments on the situation, while other took shots at Meyer’s reputation and health. Some made jokes about Russigate, Michigan’s struggles in its division and Meyer taking a spot on Nick Saban’s staff.
Yep. And every coach should adopt The Steve Spurrier rule. Said @SteveSpurrierUF to coaches and players : "You hit a woman and you're done. Period." https://t.co/wgtEzgvpSC

This needs to be said. Urban has had great success at Ohio State, but Ohio State is a top five program and the program is bigger than him

It appears Urban Meyer turned a blind eye to the situation @ Ohio State! Kudos to Ohio State for acting swiftly but I still think he coaches @ Ohio State @ Some point in 2018! Wow! #UrbanMeyer
