Urban Meyer says he failed on media day dealing with Zach Smith

Urban Meyer says he failed on media day dealing with Zach Smith Ohio State Coach Urban Meyer: Claims That I Ignored Abuse Allegations Are ‘Simply False’

Now, back to Meyer's statement.

Meyer said last week that he knew nothing about a 2015 complaint or any other domestic issues that Smith had during the six years Meyer and Smith worked together at Ohio State.

Courtney Smith spoke recently to Stadium sports network, outlining accusations that Zach Smith on various occasions threw her against a wall, picked her up by her neck, and took a golf club to her auto and broke her windshield after a recruiting dinner.

Two days after he was placed on paid administrative leave and less than two weeks after Zach Smith was sacked, Ohio State Buckeyes head football coach Urban Meyer has released a statement on Twitter Friday afternoon.

Zach Smith was sacked from Ohio State in July after he was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass during a dispute with Courtney Smith.

Courtney Smith was anxious about how all this would affect their two children, who were very young and highly impressionable.

The assistant, meanwhile, was telling two media outlets that he never hit his ex-wife.

Smith also explained that Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith called him following the 2015 incident and told him to "get on the next plane home".

Zach Smith was sacked last week by Meyer.

Meyer had told Smith that she would inform her husband about it. I do feel it necessary to share the truth with the Buckeye family. "This allows the team to conduct training camp with minimal distraction".

Elderly German Men Escape From Nursing Home To Attend Metal Festival
Once located, they were reportedly reluctant to leave, but were eventually escorted from the festival in taxi and patrol vehicles. Deutsche Welle reports the men were reported missing by the nursing home and later found by police at the festival - at 3 a.m.


Ohio State's first game is scheduled for September 1 against the Oregon State Beavers. Co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day is acting head coach and there is no timeline for the Meyer inquiry to conclude. "I never got charged", he said.

Smith maintained his innocence, saying he has never been charged by police in OH and that nothing he did warrants it. "I take that responsibility very seriously and any suggestion to the contrary is simply false".

In a statement issued Friday, Meyer said he had properly reported those allegations, although he apologized for the way he answered questions about the situation at a recent Big Ten media event.

Smith in a radio interview denied abusing his ex-wife and no charges were filed, which has led a troubling number of championship-blinded Ohio State fans to blame the victim - horrifying confirmation of a culture and system set up to silence women like Courtney Smith. The abuse began in 2009, while he was an assistant to Meyer at the University of Florida, she said. "I told Shelley, I sent her some pictures (of her injuries), I spoke to her on the phone". I've never had a conversation about it. I know nothing about it.

"It's as heartfelt, honest and as true a statement as I've ever heard", he said. After that, I told him, I said, 'They have some pictures of her. At Big Ten media days last week, Meyer had denied any knowledge of the incident.

"The Ohio State University Board of Trustees today formed a special, independent board working group related to the investigation involving Urban Meyer that was announced on Wednesday".

"It was a move they had to make", said Smith, the grandson of former Ohio State coach Earle Bruce. Smith claims that Meyer knew about this incident but continued to protect Smith.

In June 2009, he was arrested for aggravated battery when he reportedly threw a pregnant Courtney Smith into a wall after they argued at their house.

Steve Gorman reacts to Urban Meyer's statement to the public regarding his handling of the alleged domestic violence between Zach Smith and his wife that occurred in 2015.

Meyer's wife Shelley is also an important piece to this situation as she was contacted by Smith's ex-wife, Courtney. He earlier won two national titles at Florida.
