Urban Meyer Placed On Administrative Leave By Ohio State

Urban Meyer Already Has a Path to a Comeback

College football reporter Brett McMurphy, the same guy who broke the news about OSU wide receivers coach Zach Smith's firing following multiple allegations of domestic abuse, posted screenshots of text conversations between Zach's ex-wife Courtney and Urban Meyer's wife Shelley, photos of Courtney's injuries, along with an extensive report of his other findings on Facebook.

Urban Meyer has been placed on paid administration leave. Meyer said he and his wife, Shelley, addressed the incident with the Smiths, but that's about as far as it went. "This allows the team to conduct training camp with minimal distraction".

"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. By day's end, he was on administrative leave, amid speculation he will not again be the Buckeyes head coach.

Zach Smith had been on Meyer's staff since Meyer's days at the University of Florida, but he was sacked last week after McMurphy dug up multiple police reports alleging domestic violence against Zach Smith. Smith played for Meyer at Bowling Green and began his coaching career under Meyer in Florida.

Zach Smith was finally dismissed by Meyer on July 23 after an OH court granted a domestic violence protective order to Courtney Smith against her former husband. But Smith did not follow up to see whether Urban Meyer had been told.

Urban Meyer's days leading the Buckeyes could be numbered.

Separately, a court hearing for Zach Smith was postponed Thursday on a domestic protection order sought by his ex-wife.

Urban Meyer is suspended from Ohio State.

"Sometimes you get in life something you don't like ... you have to do something different", he told USA TODAY Sports in December.

Zach Smith was sacked last week after an OH court granted a domestic violence protective order to Courtney Smith.

From making sure every minute of practice is accounted for to fretting over what players are putting in their bodies at the dining hall, no detail is too small for a coach's prying eyes. He pleaded not guilty, and a hearing is scheduled for Friday. "I don't know. Someone texted me that last night". He said he didn't know of any incident in 2015 but that the Ohio State staff did its own investigation and found no basis for the allegation. "No, and I asked some people back at the office to call and say what happened and they came back and said they know nothing about it".
