Meyer also tweeted his statement.
Meyer released a two-paragraph apology on his Twitter feed and through Ohio State's communications department Friday evening to say sorry to all women, men and families affected by relationship violence.
Meyer said he knew that police had investigated domestic assault allegations involving the Smiths in 2009 when Meyer and Smith were at the University of Florida and again in 2015 at Ohio State. I sincerely apologize. I was taught at a very young age that if I ever hit a woman, I would be kicked out of the house and never welcomed back.
When asked at a press conference that day if he had a message for Courtney Smith, Meyer said, "Well, I have a message for everyone involved in this: I'm sorry that we're in this situation".
Meyer was placed on leave on August 1 after reports surfaced that he knew of Courtney's domestic violence allegations against Zach.
Meyer faced criticism after the news conference for failing to directly address Courtney Smith, who went public with claims she had told Meyer's wife her ex-husband, Zach, had shoved her against a wall and put his hands around her neck in 2015.Читайте также: Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop resigns from Cabinet
But he'll keep doing him because, you know, Ohio State has prioritized winning over integrity. He committed to Ohio State in July, but holds scholarship offers from numerous nation's top programs, including Alabama, Clemson, Auburn, LSU and Oklahoma, among others.
In a press conference Wednesday, the university announced Meyer's suspension without pay through September 2, as well as for the first three games of the season.
Meyer apologize to "Buckeye Nation" during his news conference on Wednesday.
Smith was sacked last month after his ex-wife, Courtney Smith, requested a protection order. I gave Zach Smith the benefit of the doubt. "If I had known more, I would have taken action much quicker".
And so it shouldn't be a great comfort to Courtney Smith that Meyer finally did something that was so hard to do in front of the media.
Courtney Smith has not responded to questions about how she viewed Meyer's comments. Reactions to Meyer's freakish "answers" have been nearly universally negative.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
