Ohio State coach Urban Meyer says ‘there’s no issue’ regarding co-defensive coordinator Greg Schiano and Jerry Sandusky
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer didn’t seem at all concerned about unsealed court documents that revealed testimony connecting co-defensive coordinator Greg Schiano to former Penn State coach and child molester, Jerry Sandusky.
Testimony from former Penn State staffer Mike McQueary claims Schiano witnessed Sandusky conducting inappropriate behavior with a boy in a shower when Schiano was a Penn State assistant during the early 1990s. The testimony claims he went into longtime Penn State assistant Tom Bradley’s office “white as a ghost,” after witnessing Sandusky’s actions.
Meyer addressed the claims involving Schiano on Wednesday.
“I’ve known Greg for 20 some years,” Meyer said, according to WTVG’s Steve Slivka. “I have as much respect for Greg Schiano as any person – not just coach – any person. “We had a chat. He told me everything that happened and he stands by his statement, we stand by that statement and there’s no issues as far as I’m concerned.”
Schiano denied ever witnessing any misconduct from Sandusky during his Penn State tenure from 1990-95.
“I never saw any abuse, nor had reason to suspect any abuse, during my time at Penn State,” Schiano told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Schiano is the newest name mentioned in the Sandusky scandal after unsealed testimony also revealed that a victim told former Penn State head coach Joe Paterno he was abused in 1976.
