A former Ohio State assistant coach accepted a plea deal Tuesday to resolve the criminal charges that spared a months-long controversy for the Buckeyes football program, ESPN reports.
Zach Smith pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct in exchange for the dismissal of a criminal trespassing charge.
A judge in Delaware County, Ohio ordered him to pay $289 in fines and court fees associated with the case.
Smith tweeted out that he agreed to a three-year domestic violence protection order.
