LOOK: Courtney Smith issues lengthy response to Zach Smith's accusations involving Tom Herman
For most of the 2018 season, the ugly saga involving former Ohio State WR coach Zach Smith seemed to be over.
However, on Sunday, it came roaring back into the spotlight, as Smith took to Twitter to rant against Texas coach Tom Herman, who he believes was Brett McMurphy’s source regarding Smith’s alleged domestic violence incidents.
On Monday, Courtney Smith — Zach’s ex-wife — posted a lengthy response to Zach’s wild allegations on Facebook. Read the whole thing below:
“I feel the need to speak up about this latest issue with Zach and his accusations against a friend of mine,” the post reads. “First off, please don’t believe anything he puts out there. He is completely untrustworthy and unstable and I should know since I’ve dealt with him for so long. His attacks against Tom and Michelle Herman aren’t really about Tom, but about Michelle and her friendship with me. He can’t attack her directly, so he has to use her family to try to hurt her.”
She goes on to say that the Hermans weren’t the ones who spoke to reporter Brett McMurphy, saying she’s the only one who has spoken to him:
“It is beyond unfair for them to face attacks for simply trying to ensure my safety and the safety of the people that were still on staff at OSU. Neither Michelle or Tom ever spoke to Brett McMurphy about anything that had to do with Zach. That lie was just another one of Zach’s delusions and an attempt by him to damage their reputation. I am the only person that has ever spoken to Brett. For the most part, they have simply remained supportive of my attempts to rebuild my life.”
Zach Smith seems determined to stay in the news, so we’ll have to see if he has any actual evidence against Herman or if he’s just ranting.
