Fired Ohio State assistant Zach Smith lashes out in tweets

But on Tuesday, one last bit of housekeeping from the Urban Meyer-Zach Smith investigation was crossed off the list, as Ohio State released a trove of documents uncovered during the investigation.

The Dispatch piece offers no explanation for why Ohio State would have put Herman's name out like that.

In a series of tweets Wednesday, the 34-year-old Smith also lashed out at media, contended the investigation into his behavior was botched and said he hopes Meyer was forced by the university to apologize.

The Columbus Dispatch reported that Ohio State spokesman Chris Davey confirmed that Herman, then Ohio State's offensive coordinator, was the unidentified coach cited in a 23-page university investigation. The main target for Smith is college football insider Brett McMurphy, who broke the story that head coach Urban Meyer had previous knowledge of the allegations despite previously denying any.

Meyer, of course, wasn't on the sideline for Ohio State's 77-31 win over Oregon State on Saturday, serving the first of his three-game suspension.

Smith was sacked by Meyer on July 24 after a ruling from an OH judge said he was a danger to his family.

Texas did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
