Wed. 8:22 pm: OSU names Day as acting coach

Urban Meyer with his wife after an Ohio State football game

"We are focused on supporting our players and on getting to the truth as expeditiously as possible", the university said in a statement.

There are a set of facts to work with moving forward, starting with the criminal trespass and past allegations against Zach Smith that started this whole mess that has tripped up Meyer's smooth-running machine just two days before training camp.

" 'In 2015 I came forward with it, ' Smith said". Meyer fired Zach Smith on July 24 after police issued a protective order against him at Courtney Smith's behest. She called the police after an incident that October, when Smith allegedly shoved her against the wall with his hands around her neck, "something he did very often", Courtney said.

Meyer told reporters he did not know about further domestic violence allegations from 2015.

Reporter Brett McMurphy posted a story Wednesday that heavily quoted Smith's ex-wife Courtney and showed text messages between Courtney Smith and Meyer's wife Shelley as well as a text exchange between Courtney Smith and Lindsey Voltolini, the wife of Ohio State football operations director Brian Voltolini. "All the (coaches) wives knew", Courtney Smith told McMurphy. It will only be after he and his ex-wife are sworn in to testify,"attorney Brad Koffel said".

Yet you could never argue with the results.

She said she would speak to the Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh. "Not guts but greed for power, driving them to polarise India over NRC".

"Zach once told me", Courtney said, "if he ever got fired and this all comes out: 'I'll take everyone at Ohio State down with me'".

McMurphy said his report was backed up by text messages.

When Meyer was asked about the protection order filed against Smith, the coach said the firing decision had "a little bit" to do with that and that it was a "group effort" to come to that decision. Ryan Day will serve as acting head football coach during the investigation. Smith was sacked on July 24 amid accusations of domestic violence against his now ex-wife.

"[DeFries] said, 'If you don't drop the charges, Zach will never coach again, '" Smith told McMurphy.

The charge was lowered to a misdemeanor. Courtney Smith said her then-husband had assaulted her during an argument about their young children. Several of her anecdotes allege that a few of Meyer's assistant coaches, as well as his wife, Shelley, knew about Zach Smith's history of domestic abuse. "I sent her some pictures". Also, as an Ohio State employee who supervises others, Meyer is required by the university's sexual misconduct policy to report knowledge of domestic abuse by a university employee. Many of them depict bruises on Courtney's body, particularly around he arm, as well as one photo showing blood oozing out of cuts on her hand.

One of the more sensitive topics in the college football world to start off August is the situation surrounding the Ohio State Buckeyes' head coach Urban Meyer and his coaching staff.
