Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer reportedly helped cover up a "racially charged altercation" between former OSU assistant Zach Smith and former OSU and current Gators WR Trevon Grimes in which Smith allegedly used the n-word during a confrontation with the receiver in a practice last year, per Watch Stadium's Brett McMurphy.
Ohio State University denied the allegations in the following statement:
"The Ohio State University unequivocally and vehemently disputes the unfounded allegations by Brett McMurphy. Any allegations of racism are outrageous and false. The university told McMurphy that we have found no evidence to support these allegations. Reporting in this manner is irresponsible, inflammatory and a severe invasion of privacy of a student athlete and his family as well as a baseless personal attack on Coach Meyer. It is regrettable that McMurphy and his employer would use such poor judgment in running this inaccurate story." - Ohio State University
Ohio State and Meyer are considering legal action in response to the report.
