Urban Meyer finally apologizes to Courtney Smith…sort of

On Wednesday, Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer was suspended three games for his failures concerning disgraced former assistant Zach Smith.

He also raised a lot of eyebrows and drew plenty of righteous criticism for pretty much apologizing to everyone but Courtney Smith for his failures concerning her ex-husband.

On Friday, Meyer released a statement on Twitter, finally apologizing to Smith, writing, “Let me say here and now what I should have said on Wednesday: I sincerely apologize to Courtney Smith and her children for what they have gone through.”

He also said he didn’t show “how seriously I take relationship violence.”

Meyer isn’t exactly apologizing personally, however.

In reality, what his words mean is he’s sorry they’ve been through a tough time, not that he’s sorry he contributed to that.
