This Is What Urban Meyer Said About Domestic Violence In 2014

This Is What Urban Meyer Said About Domestic Violence In 2014

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer is on paid administrative leave while the university investigates a claim that he knew a former assistant coach had a history of alleged domestic abuse.

Hours after Courtney Smith's interview was posted online Wednesday, Ohio State said it was conducting an investigation into the allegations and Meyer was being placed on leave. Meyer said the decision to fire Smith was a "very tough call".

"It's a insane, unfortunate situation", Apple said after training camp practice on Thursday. "I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter".

Smith, who was sacked last week, has never been convicted of a crime or charged with assaulting his ex-wife - but she has provided evidence that seems to indicate her claims are true.

"All the [coaches'] wives knew", Smith told McMurphy.

In announcing the deal with Meyer, Evans, the chain's president and CEO, said that, "we're ready for whatever plays he throws at us".

Smith was sacked July 23 after reports surfaced that his ex-wife filed an order of protection against him.

The situation involving Urban Meyer at Ohio State has sent shockwaves across the sports world, and numerous coach's former players have been asked to weigh in on it. If we're to believe what Urban Meyer said last week, his wife kept quiet about the whole affair, not even bothering to mention at the dinner table, "Hey, you've got an assistant coach who might have a problem".

Since returning to coaching, Meyer's program has been one of the most dominant in college football, and his players have mostly stayed out of major trouble.

The Buckeyes fired wide receivers coach Zach Smith last week after he was served with a civil protection order over a string of domestic assaults against his ex-wife, Courtney Smith, between 2009 and 2015. A hearing has been scheduled for Friday. Charges were never filed in those cases.

"I got a text last night that something happened in 2015, and there was nothing", Meyer told reporters at the Big Ten Media Days, adding, "I don't know who creates a story like that". Those messages include pictures of a bruised Courtney Smith. I know nothing about it.
