Urban Meyer placed on paid administrative leave amid investigation

Urban Meyer placed on paid administrative leave amid investigation

Courtney Smith's text messages with Meyer's wife, Shelley, who at one point during a 2015 exchange said, "I am with you!" And he was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespassing on July 18 related to an incident in May, McMurphy reported. A hearing has been scheduled for Friday.

In 2009, Zach Smith was accused of aggravated battery on his then-pregnant wife while he was working for Meyer in Gainesville, Florida.

According to Courtney, two of Meyer's closest friends asked her to drop the charges from that event, which she ultimately agreed to. Meyer brought Smith, the grandson of late Buckeyes coach Earle Bruce, to Ohio State in 2012. At Ohio State, for instance, the desk in Meyer's office was angled toward the door leading into the Buckeyes' main football facility - allowing him to see who was going in and out, and when. Smith played for Meyer at Bowling Green and began his coaching career under Meyer in Florida.

Courtney Smith has alleged her husband abused in her two separate instances, once in 2009 and again in 2015. The Powell Police Department filed incident reports after twice investigating Smith that fall.

Meyer was asked about the allegations last week at Big Ten Media Day, but said if he had known, he would have fired Smith back in 2015.

A change in the police report for the domestic violence incident on October 26, 2015. "I said: 'That's fine".

The conflicting narratives of the White Helmets
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said they were acting on a request from the U.S. , the United Kingdom and other European nations. The group, which operates in opposition-held areas, is often targeted in Syrian government attacks on its members and facilities.


"I was never told about anything", Meyer told reporters.

As we at time of publication await any official response from the Meyers and the school, we anticipate the possibility that Meyer can stand on the razor-thin implausibility that his wife never actually let him know about any of what was going on in 2015 and that the other conversation about his conflicted feelings was entirely unfounded.

"I do believe he knew, and instead he chose to help the abuser, enable the abuser, and believe every story Zach was telling everybody", Courtney Smith told Stadium. First I heard about that was last night.

In Meyer's absence, Ryan Day will assume head coaching duties for the Buckeyes.

At Florida, where Meyer led the Gators to national championships in 2006 and 2008, his program dominated the Southeastern Conference yet too often found itself in the headlines for player misconduct. He followed Kelly to the San Francisco 49ers in 2016, also serving as quarterbacks coach for Kelly's lone season as the head coach there. The Gators went 8-5 in 2010, and after, Meyer stepped down for good. This, despite the fact that the Ohio State coach denied knowing anything about it at Big Ten Media Days last week. As of August 1, the most recent news pertaining to Meyer is that he is now placed on administrative leave from his coaching position with Ohio State football. Plus Gainesville Police arrested Rainey for striking a woman in the face in 2013.
