Ohio State president provides update on Urban Meyer investigation

Ohio-State-Motivational-Mantras-Football-8-28

Former Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith was questioned by investigators on Tuesday as a part of Ohio State's investigation into what current head football coach Urban Meyer knew about the domestic abuse allegations made by Smith's ex-wife, Courtney.

Smith, the grandson of former Ohio State coach and Meyer mentor Earle Bruce, was dismissed July 23 after Courtney Smith was granted a domestic-protection order.

Their only two losses came against Ohio State and Michigan State, which were both away games.

A new report from Brett McMurphy brings to light further behavior that calls into question the character of Zach Smith, the former Ohio State wide receivers coach who was sacked last month.

The school announced Friday that the investigation will wrap up on Sunday as planned, and a report will be delivered to the six-person group appointed by trustees to coordinate the probe.

University president Michael Drake did not get into specifics when asked whether lying to the public could be considered a fireable offense.

"There is a great deal of interest in this investigation", Drake said in an interview.

Meyer said August 3 that he had reported the Smith allegation to the proper channel.

"What we're doing now is an investigation to try to find out exactly what happened, why, what the context was, etc.", Drake said. Ohio State opens the 2018 season against Oregon State on September 1. I've been doing my best possible job to keep an open mind.

"As I said, stay tuned". Courtney Smith, now Zach's ex-wife, told Stadium on August 1 that she believed Meyer was aware of a 2015 claim of abuse against her then-husband.

The independent working group is chaired by former Ohio House Speaker Jo Ann Davidson. He admitted on August 3 that he had lied to reporters at Big Ten media days when he said he had no knowledge of a 2015 accusation against Smith, which became public the day before. The investigation is being led by former chair of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Mary Jo White, a former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY.
