Local News

POWELL, OH (WCMH) — Former Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in court Tuesday.

According to Delaware Municipal Court records, a criminal trespassing charge against Smith was reduced to disorderly conduct. The charge was filed based on a complaint filed by Smith’s ex-wife.

Smith was fired from the Ohio State Football program earlier this year after allegations of domestic violence surfaced.

In a statement posted to Twitter, Smith said he also agreed to a mutual protection order between him and Courtney Smith. Smith said he pleaded guilty to the minor misdemeanor to avoid the cost of a trial.
