Suspended Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer released a new statement on Friday morning, stating that “there have been a number of things reported in the media about President Drake’s decision and the Investigative Team’s Report that have not been correct and must be clarified.”

Meyer said he wanted to clarify that he “was not suspended because I knew about or condoned (former wide receivers coach) Zach Smith’s alleged domestic abuse,” and also that he “did not lie at Big Ten Media Days.” His fault, he said in his statement, “was in not taking action sooner against a troubled employee about his work-related issues.”

Meyer is suspended for Ohio State’s first three games of the season, but will allowed to return to the team on Monday, following Saturday’s season opener against Oregon State, to resume coaching the team, with the exception of the following two game days against Rutgers and TCU.

Urban loves dropping these tweets on Friday. I wonder why
