OSU says Urban Meyer investigation expected to be completed within 14 days

OSU says Urban Meyer investigation expected to be completed within 14 days

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer was placed on administrative leave last week as the school investigates what Meyer knew about former wide receivers coach Zach Smith allegedly abusing his ex-wife, Courtney Smith.

Meyer was put on paid leave last week amid questions about what he knew and did about accusations of abuse made against Smith, who was sacked July 24 after his ex-wife sought a restraining order against him. However, Meyer released a statement saying he was aware of the 2015 incidents and reported them.

On Friday, Meyer acknowledged that he had "failed" to be "completely accurate" in comments he made at a Big Ten media days session the week before.

Ohio State announced in an email late Sunday evening that the newly appointed independent working group, which was formed by the university's board of trustees, met late last week, appointed a charge and engaged an investigative firm. In a statement released Friday via Twitter, Meyer admitted that he knew about the 2015 incidents and insisted he followed proper protocol. The allegations of domestic violance against Smith date back to 2009, when Smith was an assistant on Urban Meyer's staff at Florida. That claim went directly against his assertion at Big Ten that "there was nothing" to the accusations.

Meyer added that there were "more questions to be answered" and he pledged to "cooperate fully" with investigators hired by OSU.

In the meantime, a "Save Urban Meyer" petition posted Thursday at Change.org has almost reached its goal of 25,000 signatures. Zach Smith, a grandson of late Buckeyes coach Earle Bruce, who was a mentor to Meyer, also asserted that he had never harmed her and that the head coach handled the allegations appropriately. Smith left Temple after a season to join Meyer's staff at Ohio State. Ohio State opens a season in which it holds championship aspirations on September 1 at home against Oregon State.

"This guy's huge, man", Hamms told the Myrtle Beach Sun News.
