Ohio State announces group that will direct Urban Meyer investigation

03 August 2018

News broke on Wednesday morning that Urban Meyer is alleged to have known about an incident of domestic abuse involving his wide receiver coach Zach Smith back when they occurred in 2015.

Bob Evans Restaurants put its partnership with Urban Meyer on hold Thursday as Ohio State continues to investigate what its football coach knew about allegations of domestic abuse against a former assistant coach.

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".

You can say you would've handled things differently, but that overlooks the larger, much more important, issue.

Practice in Columbus starts on Friday, and offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day will serve as the acting head coach in preparation for the 2018 season. Zach Smith pleaded not guilty last month.

Zach Smith was charged in May with misdemeanor criminal trespass.

In an interview with McMurphy, Courtney reportedly said she and Shelley regularly talked about Zach's abuse in 2015.

McMurphy also obtained a text exchange that Courtney Smith said was with Lindsey Voltolini, whose husband, Brian, has been a member of Meyer's coaching staffs at OSU, Florida, Utah and Bowling Green.

There are, however, a sufficient number of facts that show Meyer is in real danger of losing his job, and the dismissals might not stop there. The incident effectively ended Rice's NFL career, and was used as an example by football coaches across the country, including Ohio State's Urban Meyer. I said, "2015"? That was only a couple years ago.

Of course, there could be more factors in play than just whether Stoops wants to coach again, including whether athletics director Gene Smith gets caught up in the controversy.

Ohio State is also conducting an investigation, undoubtedly to find out if Meyer knew of the allegations against Zach Smith. Most troubling, that includes an alleged incident of domestic abuse on October 25, 2015, shortly before the couple divorced.

Meyer told reporters last week that he didn't know anything about the 2015 incident. That is about all I can say right now. I know nothing about it. "I don't know. Someone texted me that last night".
