Ohio State's Urban Meyer could face termination over assistant abuse claims

Urban Meyer

Meyer is on administrative leave while Ohio State investigates claims that Meyer's wife knew about 2015 allegations of abuse against former Buckeyes assistant Zach Smith, who was sacked last week.

Urban Meyer head coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes after the game against the Michigan Wolverines, Ohio State won 31 to 20 on November 25, 2017 at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Meyer said he and his wife, Shelley, addressed the incident with the Smiths, but that's about as far as it went.

While speaking with reporters at training camp, Apple described Meyer's administrative leave and the investigation as "unfortunate". In that exchange, Lindsey Voltolini said Meyer spoke with Smith, and the assistant "denied everything".

USA hits Turkey with sanctions over American pastor's detention
Other analysts said the sanctions on Turkish government officials would likely harden Turkey's position on other key issues. The US has maintained that there is no credible evidence to support the charges brought against Brunson.

Meyer said he was aware of an incident involving Zach and Courtney Smith in 2009, while they were still married.

He said that the various issues that took place in the months leading up to the season, including Rice, Greg Hardy, Jameis Winston, and others, were discussed with the team.

Zach Smith was sacked on July 23 after he was served a civil protection order on behalf of Courtney Smith.

A United States official noted to Reuters that this recent activity suggests North Korea may be looking to improve their missiles. The complex has a single, guarded entrance and features high-rise residential towers apparently used by workers.

"Well he is a good friend of mine and a good football coach", Whittingham said when asked rather unspecifically about his thoughts on Meyer. As you got deeper and deeper into the story it got progressively worse, and since then I haven't seen any indication that from that school or from anyone else that he is. He was one of my coaches when I played. The Smiths separated in June 2015 and divorced in 2016.

Meyer told reporters at Big Ten media days on July 24 that he knew nothing about the allegations.

Zach Smith was charged in May with misdemeanor criminal trespass. The Smiths are due in court in September and their lawyers did not respond to messages seeking comment Thursday. "I don't know. Someone texted me that last night". "I was never told about anything and nothing ever came to light. 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".
