'Meyered' in controversy: OSU coach placed on leave

'Meyered' in controversy: OSU coach placed on leave

But this terrible story is far from over. However, on Monday Courtney Smith told college football reporter Brett McMurphy that Urban Meyer did know about the domestic violence.

Ohio State University placed head football coach Urban Meyer on administrative leave on Monday as it launches an investigation into allegations that Meyer failed to act on domestic violence allegations against a team employee.

On Thursday night, Ohio State announced it formed an independent board "related to the investigation involving Urban Meyer".

Those are just some of the facts. Courtney Smith also provided threatening texts she claims came from her ex-husband, former assistant Zach Smith. "We understand the power of the roles that we have", Herman said.

Zach Smith's attorney, Brad Koffel, said in a statement to ESPN on Wednesday: "Once he gets his chance to tell his side of events, don't be surprised when it is corroborated by every police who ever responded to Ms. Smith's calls".

The former assistant, Zach Smith, was sacked last week after an OH court granted a protective order sought by his ex-wife Courtney Smith.

Lindsey Voltolini is the wife of Ohio State Football Operations Direction Brian Voltolini.

That's yet another detail that makes it hard to believe that Meyer wasn't aware that one of his assistants was, at best, a threat to his ex-wife's well-being, and, at worst, an abusive monster. McMurphy reports that Zach Smith's lawyer had the divorce documents sealed without Courtney Smith's consent. It is easy to demand that Urban Meyer "be held accountable" ...




In 2009, Zach Smith was accused of aggravated battery on his then-pregnant wife while he was working for Meyer in Gainesville, Florida. Meyer-one of the most celebrated coaches in college sports-is officially, stunningly, on ice.

It's a money play, they say. "I said, 'That's fine".

Shelley: "I am with you!"

There is no "right time" to tell your story.

That figure makes him not only the highest-paid state employee in OH, but the highest-paid public-school football coach in the United States.

"That's at another program that I'm not going to comment on", said Herman when asked if he had discussed the Ohio State situation with the two.

Plenty of you - many of whom are OSU fans - disagree.

"No matter what is proven about these allegations against the former wide receiver coach at Ohio State", wrote Paterno, "this much is beyond doubt: Urban Meyer did not commit a crime, he did not witness, nor did he cover up any crimes".
