Ohio State Puts Urban Meyer on Paid Administrative Leave

02 Août, 2018, 05:57 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Earlier this year, Meyer agreed to a contract extension that would require Ohio State to pay him $38.1 million if he is fired without cause. That said, a text message exchange between Courtney Smith and the wife of one of Meyer's long-time football staffers showed that the head coach had indeed talked to Zach Smith about the allegations of domestic abuse in October of 2015.

The school will investigate what Meyer knew and when he knew it, but to claim that Meyer had no responsibility to act on allegations of domestic violence in his own football program goes against the very standard that schools should expect from anyone in a leadership position.

Shelley Meyer is a registered nurse and instructor of Clinical Practice at the Ohio State University College of Nursing.

But when they travel to AT&T Stadium on September 15 to play TCU, it is possible that Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer might not be making the trip. Ryan Day will serve as acting head football coach during the investigation.

"This allows the team to conduct training camp with minimal distraction", Meyer said in a statement. "I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter", said Meyer in a statement.

Last week during Big Ten Media Days, McMurphy reports that Urban Meyer said that he did not know about two domestic violence incidents in 2015 that allegedly involved Zach Smith.

In an interview with Stadium, Courtney Smith said Shelley Smith never came back to her to tell her she discussed Zach Smith's actions with Urban Meyer. "Never anything came to light, never had a conversation about it".

"I do believe he knew and instead he chose to help the abuser and enable the abuser and believe whatever story Zach was telling everybody", Smith said. Meyer fired Zach Smith on July 24 after police issued a protective order against him at Courtney Smith's behest.

Ohio State placed football Coach Urban Meyer on paid administrative leave late Wednesday after the ex-wife of a longtime assistant called into question Meyer's claims he was unaware of a 2015 allegation of domestic abuse against the assistant.

"All the [coaches] wives knew", Courtney told McMurphy. She told law enforcement that she had "been a victim of sustained physical abuse by [Zach Smith]".

Smith was sacked July 23 after McMurphy first reported the 2015 incident and another in 2009 when Smith was on Meyer's staff at Florida.

Zach Smith was charged in May with misdemeanor criminal trespass.
