University of Texas' Tom Herman speaks on Ohio State's Urban Meyer situation

College football writer Brett McMurphy reported on Wednesday that Meyer's wife, Shelley, knew that Smith had abused his wife, Courtney, providing text messages as proof.

Smith provided McMurphy with text messages she exchanged with Shelley Meyer in 2015 about the incident, which brought a police visit but did not result in criminal charges against Zach Smith, who was sacked last month after that allegation and one from 2009 came to light.

The Ohio State University announced on Thursday that its Board of Trustees formed a "special independent board working group related to the investigation involving Urban Meyer". Zach Smith denied the allegation in a statement released by his lawyer.

Paterno wrote his post before Meyer was put on leave by Ohio State. Meyer said he and his wife, Shelley Meyer, "actually both got involved because of our relationship with that family and advised counseling and wanted to help as we moved forward". The deal runs through 2022 and increases Meyer's salary to $7.6 million in 2018, with annual 6 percent raises for the bulk of his compensation.

Zach Smith was charged in May with misdemeanor criminal trespass. "Nothing!" - when asked about multiple domestic abuse allegations involving one of his assistant coaches.

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

Jay Paterno, who was the team's quarterbacks coach under his father, has been a staunch defender of Joe Paterno's actions. Those photos show bruises, cuts and marks on Courtney Smith.

The former assistant, Zach Smith, was sacked last week after an OH court granted a protective order sought by his ex-wife Courtney Smith. But the restaurant's website, as first noted by Columbus Business First, no longer contains the page dedicated to Meyer as "head breakfast coach". Courtney said in an interview with Stadium published Wednesday that Shelley told Courtney she would have to tell Urban about the allegations. "I don't know. Someone texted me that last night".

"He said 'if you don't drop the charges, Zach will never coach again, '" Courtney Smith told McMurphy. I told people to go find out for me. Meyer didn't "know what to think", Lindsey Voltolini said.
