I wouldn’t be surprised if he is out by the end of the week. Ohio State is under fire for possible sexual misconduct of team doctors going back years, and now this? If he knew about what happened in 2015 with Zach Smith and his wife, and went to Big Ten Media Day and openly lied about it, the optics of keeping him are just horrible.
Yes, hiding domestic violence among your coaching staff is worse than hiding free tattoos, but I’m not going to make that comparison. Jim Tressell wasn’t fired because he hid tattoos, he was fired because doing so was a direct violation of NCAA rules. Hiding domestic abuse charges against your assistant coach isn’t, but it’s a PR disaster that OSU, and the NCAA, doesn’t want.
On the other hand, replacing him with Greg Schiano will be an even worse PR disaster. Please no.
