Former Ohio State wide receivers coach released a Twitter statement Tuesday evening after it was reported that he and his ex-wife Courtney Smith reached a three-year domestic violence protection order earlier Tuesday in Delaware County, Ohio.

Smith was fired from his position at Ohio State in July following allegations of domestic violence against Courtney. The situation led to an investigation that resulted in a three-game suspension for head coach Urban Meyer and a three-week suspension for athletic director Gene Smith.
Smith is the grandson of former Ohio State head coach Earle Bruce, who passed away in April.
