Urban Meyer Suspended Three Games By Ohio State

Ohio State trustees holding marathon debate on Urban Meyer’s future

You should tell Urban.

The end result of the two-week investigation into the school's handling of domestic violence accusations against a former assistant coach was a three-game suspension without pay for Meyer and a 17-day suspension without pay for Smith, coinciding with the same three games Meyer will miss.

It's ridiculous that Ohio State's investigation concluded Meyer and athletics director Gene Smith failed to properly manage Zach Smith's misconduct, but then claimed neither Meyer nor Smith condoned or covered up the alleged actions by the former wide receivers coach.

"I did not know everything about Zach Smith and what Zach Smith was doing and the report made this clear", Meyer said.

Zach Smith's attorney, Brad Koffel, issued a statement to USA Today Sports after Ohio State's announcement: "Zach Smith married a woman he should not have married". Meyer fired Smith a day after a report from Brett McMurphy brought to light a domestic violence civil protection order and past domestic violence allegations against Smith.

However, a text message revealed in the investigation does show that Urban and Shelley did at one point converse via text message about Zach Smith. I would think probably a full season would have sent a message as to how important dealing with domestic abuse and coaches like Zach Smith.

And three weeks after the school put him on paid leave, giving him hundreds of hours to consider what he should have done, Meyer expressed no regret for failing to protect her.

Zach Smith, grandson of the Hall of Fame former Ohio State head coach Earle Bruce, and his wife moved to the Columbus area in 2012, and "everything went out of control", Courtney Smith told Stadium. Zach Smith, who has denied his ex-wife's claims, was sacked in July after news reports highlighted her allegations.

Ohio State essentially didn't comply with a Freedom of Information Act request seeking emails and text messages between Meyer and Zach Smith and Meyer and Gene Smith. He drinks a lot and I am just not sure how stable he will be.

Incognito arrested for disorderly conduct, threats
The 35-year-old free agent, released by the Bills in May, announced on Twitter over the weekend that his father had passed away. In an emergency dispatch audio, obtained by TMZ , the operator said Incognito was "mad at employees and wants to kill someone".

But that's not exactly what chief investigator Mary Jo White or even university president Michael Drake said. Ohio State and TCU are scheduled to play September 15 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

- The investigation identified "a pattern of troubling behavior by Zach Smith: promiscuous and embarrassing sexual behavior, drug abuse, truancy, dishonesty, financial irresponsibility, a possible NCAA violation, and a lengthy police investigation into allegations of criminal domestic violence and cybercrimes".

I'm sorry for Courtney Smith.

Furthermore, a request was made by Ohio State's senior associate general counsel to Voltolini and director of internal football operations Amy Nicol on July 25 to review Meyer's phone following an open records request made by student newspaper "The Lantern".

On Wednesday night, Meyer said, "I did a poor job at media day". Allegations of domestic abuse stemmed not only from Zach Smith's time at OSU, but while he was on Meyer's Florida staff in 2009 as well.

Urban Meyer just doesn't know anything going on around him because he doesn't want to know.

The news that the college football world had been waiting for finally came down for the head football coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes Urban Meyer.

At the news conference following the exchanges, Meyer categorically denied having any knowledge of any allegations against Smith in 2015. Ohio State was voted No. 5 in the Associated Press preseason poll. The three-game suspension is no small penalty.

In a statement August 3, Meyer claimed that he has "always followed proper reporting protocols and procedures when I have learned of an incident involving a student-athlete, coach or member of our staff by elevating the issues to the proper channels".
