“I did not lie,” Urban Meyer attempts to clear up 3 misnomers

Today, Urban Meyer released a statement on Twitter in an attempt to clarify “a number of things reported in the media about President Drake’s decision and the Investigative Team’s Report that have not been correct.”


Here are the three misnomers Meyer references:

  1. “First, I was not suspended because I knew about or condoned Zach Smith’s alleged domestic abuse.”
  2. “Second, as the report found and President Drake said, I did not lie at Big Ten Media Days.”
  3. “Third, my fault was in not taking action sooner against a troubled employee about his work-related issues.”

He used direct quotes from the report’s findings to back up his claims.
