COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State co-defensive coordinator Greg Schiano was issued a ticket for failure to obey a traffic control device for his part in a car crash that involved hitting a bicyclist last week.
Schiano, the former Rutgers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach in his first season with the Buckeyes, will be arraigned on Oct. 5 and is facing a $55 fine and $97 in court costs for the minor misdemeanor after the collision early Sept. 22 during a bye week.
Schiano was uninjured and hasn't missed any work with No. 2 Ohio State.
The 26-year-old bicyclist was hospitalized but had been listed in stable condition with head injury.
Following practice Wednesday, Meyer said Schiano was "devastated" by what happened.
"I don't want to get too much into it, (but) Greg ... that broke his heart. I got the phone call," Meyer told reporters.
"I don't want to say much more than our prayers are with the young person."
Schiano, a longtime friend of Meyer, joined the Buckeyes this season and has had an instant impact for the Buckeyes thanks to his expertise in the defensive secondary. Ohio State leads the country with nine interceptions through three games.
The Buckeyes, coming off a bye week, host Rutgers Saturday.
