Zach Smith Gravedancing After Tom Herman Texas Firing

Tom Herman was fired at Texas today. Zach Smith, who was on Urban Meyer's staff alongside Tom Herman and blamed Herman for being a media source when Smith faced domestic violence allegations, is celebrating the news on Twitter today:

As we wrote when Urban Meyer was rumored to be a candidate for the Texas job, Meyer’s final season at Ohio State was marred by a scandal involving assistant coach Zach Smith. Smith was accused of domestic violence, and many questioned why Meyer would allow him to remain on the Ohio State staff. Meyer was suspended for the first three games of the 2018 season. Later that season, Smith accused Tom Herman — who had previously served as offensive coordinator at Ohio State under Meyer — of trying to bring Meyer down. Meyer ultimately retired at the end of the season. Last year, Smith was sentenced to 20 days in jail for violating a protective order in attempting to pick up his kids from school at a time that was not agreed to.
