Much as been speculated as to the treatment former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez received at Florida, but his former coach says he and the university followed normal protocol.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said via statement that blaming either the University of Florida or Meyer himself for Hernandez' actions were "wrong and irresponsible."

Hernandez is charged with first degree murder in the death of Odin Lloyd in Attleborough, Massachusetts.

Meyer was rebutting a report that Hernandez failed several drug tests while a student-athlete at Florida.
