Ohio State Puts Urban Meyer On Administrative Leave Amid Domestic Violence Scandal

Courtney Smith provided McMurphy with a series of text messages between herself and other wives of coaches on the Ohio State staff, including Urban Meyer's wife Shelley Meyer.

"Courtney said Shelley Meyer, Urban's wife of almost three decades, 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".

Meyer fired Smith on July 23 after a report from Brett McMurphy brought to light a domestic violence civil protection order and past domestic violence allegations against Smith.

Ohio State University's statement reads as such: "The university is conducting an investigation into these allegations".

Buckeyes offensive coordinator Ryan Day will serve as the interim coach while Meyer is on leave. Smith had been arrested for criminal trespassing in May.

McMurphy notes in his report that if Meyer knew about the allegations against Smith and ignored them, the school could be in violation of Title IX. Smith added that she was never told that Shelley Meyer had told her husband about the allegations at the time. Meyer claimed that was was reported wasn't what actually happened.

On Dec. 17, 2017, Courtney Smith called police because neighbors reported seeing Zach peering into her auto windows and banging on the front door of her home at 1:30 a.m. Zach Smith was issued a trespassing warning after that incident. Zach Boren - a former fullback and linebacker at Ohio State - posted a pair of tweets in response to the development. He said he received a text message in July relating to another alleged incident in 2015 that involved Zach Smith, but "there was nothing".
