Urban Meyer placed on leave in bombshell Ohio State move

In fact, Courtney Smith said of the 2015 incident, "All the [coaches'] wives knew".

UPDATED 12:37 p.m. ET: In a portion of a video interview with Courtney Smith just released, Zach Smith's ex-wife is asked if Shelley Meyer ever came back to her and told her that she had informed Urban Meyer of the abuse.

Shelley said she was going to have to tell Urban, she was going to have to tell Urban.

Courtney: "Restraining orders don't do anything in Ohio-I tried to get protection order which is what started this whole investigation".

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.

"[My] being on leave during this inquiry will facilitate its completion", Meyer said. "I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter".

A disturbing situation that Urban Meyer and the Ohio State football program had hoped had passed with a dismissal has instead resurfaced with a vengeance.

Meyer has been the head coach at Ohio State since 2012 and his record of 73-8 speaks for itself.

McMurphy's report is long and detailed, but the point he makes is that Courtney spoke to an terrible lot of people about the alleged violence, including Myers' own wife, and that it is hard to believe that no one ever bothered to mention the problem to Meyers himself. "An individual need not be charged with or convicted of a criminal offense to be found responsible for domestic violence pursuant to this policy".

Tommy Robinson wins appeal over contempt sentence
The 35-year-old admitted the charge and was jailed in May for filming outside Leeds Crown Court during a trial. The judges dismissed Robinson's appeal in respect of the earlier contempt finding at Canterbury Crown Court.

McMurphy was on with Bull and Fox this afternoon and says he has seen hundreds of text messages, but only went public with several photos.

Last week, Meyer announced that Smith had been fired. A hearing has been scheduled for Friday.

Meyer fired Zach Smith on July 23, shortly after McMurphy originally reported the 2015 allegations of domestic violence and felonious assault. The charge was dropped because of insufficient evidence.

McMurphy says he has seen a series of text messages between Courtney Smith, Zach Smith's ex-wife, and Shelley Meyer and other coaches' wives that show Urban Meyer was aware of the allegations since at least October 2015.

Text messages with Shelley Meyer appear to that show Courtney Smith routinely claimed that her husband's behavior was abusive. Charges were never filed.

While the information McMurphy shared came directly from the police report, Meyer said at Big Ten Media Days last week that "what was reported" was inaccurate.

Meyer then claimed that he knew nothing about two alleged domestic-violence incidents in 2015.

I also did reach out to the Westgate's Jeff Sherman to ask if their OSU's odds had shifted at all, and he replied "not at this time". "Never anything came to light, never had a conversation about it". I know nothing about it.
