Courtney Smith's lawyer: My client has never been contacted by Ohio State

Courtney Smith's attorney also felt the need to "set the record straight" about her client, including in the statement that Courtney was not paid for her interviews with Stadium, has tried to press charges against Zach and that Courtney has never committed a criminal offense.

Zach Smith, the school's former wide receivers coach, was sacked July 23, days after Courtney filed for a protection order against him and hours after domestic abuse allegations from 2009 and 2015 were revealed.

Fans like "Tennessee Jeff" Hamms and Stacy Elliott, the father of former Buckeye running back Ezekiel Elliott, pumped up fans with stories of Meyer's success at Ohio State, which includes a 2014 national title when Elliott was among the team's best players. The statment says Smith will fully cooperate with the university's investigation. "We can't have someone like this coaching young men".

In those remarks, he claimed there was "nothing" to a report that police had twice been called to the home of former assistant Zach Smith in 2015 to respond to allegations by his then-wife, Courtney, of domestic abuse and menace by stalking.

Smith, who was also Ohio State's recruiting coordinator, was sacked on July 23, just days after reports surfaced that an order of protection had been filed against him by Courtney Smith. Meyer told reporters he had known of the 2009 episode, which occurred when Smith was on his staff at the University of Florida, saying, "It came back to me that what was reported wasnt actually what happened". Ohio State announced on Sunday night that the investigation is expected to be completed in two weeks.

Meyer initially denied that he knew anything about the 2015 accusation before issuing a statement Friday that reversed course.

The Buckeyes open the season September 1 against Oregon State.

Leveridge also said that Smith "received absolutely no compensation" for granting interviews to reporters.

What Meyer knew and when he knew it became a question after college football writer Brett McMurphy reported that Courtney Smith had told Meyer's wife Shelley about the 2015 incidents and shared pictures of injuries through text messages that she shared with McMurphy.
