Urban Meyer's Bacon is Cooked

Adjust Comment Print

Meyer was placed on administrative leave by Ohio State on Wednesday after a report emerged that said Meyer knew that his former wide receivers coach, Zach Smith, had been accused of domestic violence by his now ex-wife in 2015.

In an interview with McMurphy, Courtney reportedly said she and Shelley regularly talked about Zach's abuse in 2015.

Ohio State is also conducting an investigation, undoubtedly to find out if Meyer knew of the allegations against Zach Smith.

The Ohio State University Board of Trustees today formed a special, independent board working group related to the investigation involving Urban Meyer that was announced on Wednesday.

While Meyer is on leave, offensive coordinator Ryan Day will serve as head coach.

Courtney Smith provided screen shots of text message conversations with several women married to men on the coaching staff, which she says indicate that Meyer was aware of the problem.

You can say you would've handled things differently, but that overlooks the larger, much more important, issue.

Why Economic Growth Might Be Weaker Than It Looks
In fact, the skepticism from economists has centred more on whether strong GDP growth would be sustainable after a few quarters. The Commerce Department just announced that the economy grew at a 4.1% GDP Growth rate in the second quarter of this year.

Said Spurrier: "I consider Urban a good friend, I really do". He was one of my coaches when I played.

When Meyer found out he was being placed on leave, he accepted it.

If Urban Meyer knew of these allegations all along and didn't take the appropriate actions, he can, and should, lose his job.

The extension also increased Meyer's salary to $7.6m for 2018, an $800,000 raise over what he was scheduled to earn.

For Meyer, the handling of former Buckeyes assistant Zach Smith is simply the latest episode in a disturbing pattern of playing dumb, even while keeping track of such minute details as a player's heart rate at practice.

Urban Meyer is suspended from Ohio State. The charge was dropped because of insufficient evidence.

Zach Smith was sacked on July 23 after he was served a civil protection order on behalf of Courtney Smith. Most troubling, that includes an alleged incident of domestic abuse on October 25, 2015, shortly before the couple divorced. I told people to go find out for me.
