Ohio State Closes Ranks As Meyer Probe Adds New Scandal

Screenshots: Did Urban lie about knowledge of coach's abuse? Urban Meyer Already Has a Path to a Comeback
| 03 August, 2018, 11:33

The son of former Penn State coach Joe Paterno wrote in a blog post Wedneday that Ohio State needed to be pragmatic in its investigation into Meyer's actions (or possible lack thereof) regarding domestic abuse allegations against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith. It's not been confirmed by Courtney Smith or anyone else that Shelley told Urban what she knew.

"Courtney said [Shelley] knew about the abuse that begin in 2009, continued in 2015 and culminated with Zach Smith being served a domestic violence civil protection order last week".

Though he publicly denied knowing anything about domestic violence allegations against one of his coaches in 2015, new evidence has reportedly come to light that suggests Ohio State football head coach Urban Meyer may have lied. Meyer said he and his wife, Shelley, addressed the incident with the Smiths, but that's about as far as it went. "I told Shelley, I sent her some pictures (of her injuries), I spoke to her on the phone".


"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. Last week at Big Ten media days, the coach said he was aware of a 2009 case in which Smith was accused of aggravated battery on his then-pregnant wife while coaching at Florida. He was one of my coaches when I played. "I know Urban has done a great job done, and if he gets back he'll do a great job". It's not clear how restrictive the paid leave will be for the coach set to earn $7.6 million for the season after getting a raise this year.

Jay Paterno has weighed in regarding the Urban Meyer situation at Ohio State. "Bob Evans Restaurants is suspending the current partnership with Urban Meyer and removing all related content pending the results of the official Ohio State University investigation". Police reports obtained by cleveland.com detail nine domestic incidents involving Smith and his now ex-wife Courtney between 2012 and last month. The Smiths separated in June 2015 and divorced in 2016. I've never had a conversation about it.
