Ohio State Announces Special Independent Board Related to Meyer Investigation

The reason it affects Meyer is because Courtney Smith, the ex-wife, claims she told Meyer's wife Shelley about what was happening and that Meyer would be informe as well. "I said: 'That's fine, you should tell Urban.' I know Shelley did everything she could".

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

Ohio State officials said Thursday that reporters would be barred from football practices until at least next week, and university trustees announced that a six-member committee will head up the investigation.

"Well he is a good friend of mine and a good football coach", Whittingham said when asked rather unspecifically about his thoughts on Meyer.

Meyer acknowledged last week that he had been aware of a 2009 domestic-abuse incident in Gainesville.

She continued, "When somebody is crying out for help, I believe, the coach along with the coach's wife have a duty".

When filled in on the details, Whittingham could only say "I hadn't heard that".

Zach Smith is the grandson of late Ohio State coach Earle Bruce, whom Meyer has long praised as a mentor and one of the most influential people in his life. Zach Smith pleaded not guilty last month.

The most recent charge occurred in May, during an incident that occurred when Zach Smith dropped off the couple's son at his wife's home.

Of course, whether Shelley Meyer really did tell her husband about Zach Smith is the subject of Ohio State's investigation.

Zach Smith was charged in May with misdemeanor criminal trespass.

"All the (coaches') wives knew", Courtney Smith told McMurphy. This was one of the worst: During an alleged assault in October 2015, Courtney Smith said her then-3-year-old daughter "was clinging" to her leg. I've never had a conversation about it. First I heard about that was last night.
