  • Urban Meyer Already Has a Path to a Comeback

Meyer, who has won three national titles, was placed on paid administrative leave Wednesday after the disclosure of domestic abuse by Courtney Smith, the former wife of one-time Ohio State assistant Zach Smith, who was sacked last month.

Courtney Smith told Stadium, a sports network, that she told Meyer's wife in 2015 about the alleged domestic violence.

Except Courtney Smith showed McMurphy text messages from Meyer's wife Shelley that certainly seem to indicate she was well aware of Zach Smith's violent past.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer hugs his wife, Shelley, after their 44-28 win over Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl NCAA college football game, in Glendale, Ariz., in 2016. "I've seen other coaches who would keep players and try to rehab them ... but I think it (zero tolerance on domestic violence) should be a rule in all of college football".

"I got a text last night that something happened in 2015, and there was nothing", Meyer told reporters at the Big Ten Media Days, adding, "I don't know who creates a story like that".

Coleman, whose three children and husband all drowned, said the captain of the boat told them they would not need life jackets . While the boat's driver on water, 51-year-old Kenneth McKee, survived; its driver on land, 73-year-old Bob Williams, did not.

Thursday afternoon, immediately following the second day of fall camp, Whittingham was once again asked about Meyer and if he had anything new he could say about the situation.

The group also will "be available to provide consultation and advice and assist with communication to the full board on the matter", the university said in a statement.

Steve Spurrier, the greatest coach in Florida Gators history - considers Urban Meyer - the second-greatest coach in Florida Gators history - to be friend. The charge was dropped because of insufficient evidence.

Courtney Smith, the ex-wife of onetime Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith, filed a domestic violence civil protection order against her ex-husband on July 20. Zach Smith pleaded not guilty last month. Smith has never been criminally charged. This was one of the worst: During an alleged assault in October 2015, Courtney Smith said her then-3-year-old daughter "was clinging" to her leg.
