Urban Meyer Releases Statement Regarding Ohio State Investigation

Urban Meyer Releases Statement Regarding Ohio State Investigation

But both Meyer's statement and Zach Smith's interviews show that Meyer's superiors knew about the allegations toward Zach Smith.

Meyer said in Chicago that he knew of a 2009 incident involving Zach Smith and his now ex-wife, Courtney, but said he knew nothing about a 2015 incident.

Zach Smith said he met with Meyer before talking to police investigators and told the coach he didn't commit domestic violence.

Zach Smith said Meyer said to him: "He looked at me and said, 'I swear to God, Zach, if I find out you hit her, you're done".

"It wasn't going to be fair for the players to go through this media circus", he said. Problem is, 10 days earlier, Meyer had categorically denied knowing anything at all.

"I never hit her". A man who, while he denied abusing his ex-wife, said Friday there were times arguments "got out of hand" and he had to "defensively restrain" her? I don't think it was his job to investigate, to ask questions, to talk to her. Zach Smith has to appear in court on August 22, 2018, for a hearing related to the criminal trespassing charge against him.

In the tweet, Smith admits to having strangled his wife on a trip to Punta Cana.

In 2009, Smith was arrested for aggravated battery of a pregnant victim during an incident in which Smith allegedly threw down his then-wife, Courtney, during an argument in their Gainesville, Fla., home.

This came on top of emotional, verbal and psychological abuse, as well as attempts to financially drain her, she told the network. Meyer has said he and his wife tried to counsel the couple at the time.

Now the possibility exists that Urban Meyer covered up for a serial domestic-abuser for years, and could possibly have his school facing Title IX violations due to his lack of action, as well as that of his wife, Shelley, who works as a registered nurse and as an instructor of Clinical Practice at the Ohio State University College of Nursing.

"In 2015, I came forward with it. I told [Meyer] what he needed to know and nothing more".

"He flew off the handle a lot on Twitter and got into debate and confrontations with people he didn't need to do - and sometimes it made him look bad", Wasserman said. Murphy then asks "You never hit her?" and Smith says "Never hit her".

Here are some details from Zach Smith's wiki.

"When I stood up to him, he didn't like it. I take that responsibility very seriously and any suggestion to the contrary is simply false". Smith has never been criminally charged.

"I feel it would not be appropriate for me to comment on matters involving Ohio State during their ongoing investigation".

Meyer's statement was read to Zach Smith during his interview with ESPN. "We got divorced because of it". I don't know what else Urban Meyer could have done.

The major quake was felt on the neighboring island of Bali, Indonesia's top tourist destination. The US Geological Survey said the quake struck at a depth of only seven kilometres.

While the statement from Meyer allows us to see his side of the story, there are still a bunch of questions and not so many answers about this entire situation.

"My intention was not to say anything inaccurate or misleading", he said, in part. "However, I was not adequately prepared to discuss these sensitive issues with the media, and I apologize for the way I handled those questions".

The university said it reopened its police investigation in January after the former dive club member contacted them, and is working with the Franklin County Prosecutor's Office.

Meyer has one of the best college football winning percentages of all time, with 188 wins and only 34 losses in 17 years.

The thing is, this is the same two-faced Meyer we knew at the University of Florida.

Smith, who spent six seasons as a wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator at Ohio State under Meyer before his termination on July 23, was also a graduate assistant under Meyer at the University of Florida from 2005-10, the same span as Addazio's entire tenure as an assistant head coach, offensive coordinator, and offensive line coach at Florida. In recent weeks, several former Ohio State athletes have come forward to publicly claim Strauss abused them under the guise of a medical examination.
