GENE SMITH ISSUES STATEMENT ABOUT OHIO STATE VIOLATIONS

Gene Smith
COLUMBUS — Below is a statement from Ohio State director of Athletics Gene Smith, issued on Thursday morning by the university ...

"Contrary to reports attributed to me, Ohio State Athletics is not facing any major NCAA violations. There are several secondary violations being processed by our compliance office. These are similar to those released last week. Again, these are secondary in nature and consistent with our culture of self-reporting even the most minor and inadvertent violations.

"Again, to be clear, the Ohio State football program, its coaches and staff are not facing any violations."
