Urban Meyer suspended three games by Ohio State

Zach Smith, Meyer's former recruiting coordinator and wide receivers coach, was sacked on July 23, after reports surfaced that an order of protection had been filed against him by his ex-wife Courtney.

The three games Meyer will miss are at home against Oregon State and Rutgers, and a neutral-site game against TCU at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith was also suspended from August 31 to September 16. "I don't know who creates a story like that".

Zach Smith said Meyer told him he would be fired if the head coach found out Smith had hit his wife.

Meyer's relationship with former Ohio State coach Earle Bruce, Meyer's mentor and the grandfather of Zach Smith, also played a role in the investigation. But he denied hearing about the 2015 incident, which occured while Smith was an Ohio State employee.

"I should have done more and I am sorry for that", Meyer told reporters at a news conference about the findings.

"Although Coach Meyer and Athletic Director Smith failed to adhere to the precise requirements of their contracts when they concluded that they needed to await a law enforcement determination to file charges before they reported the otherwise disputed claims of spousal abuse against Zach Smith, they did so based upon a good faith belief that they did not have sufficient information to trigger a reporting obligation or initiate a disciplinary action in the absence of law enforcement action".

Courtney claims she told Urban Meyer's wife about the abuse - but no action was ever taken by the University.

Each episode will feature exotic cars, locations including the Eboladrome test track, and challenges from each week's episode. While Amazon didn't list a solid release date, it's slated for release alongside the show's third season.

"There were several times where things got out of hand between us and I'm not saying that as I restrained her and moved her out of my way to exit the house to get out of a volatile situation.it's completely possible that she got a bruise or a mark", Zach said during a radio interview.

Meyer, 54, has won three national championships, two at Florida and the 2014 title at Ohio State, and has led the Buckeyes to 73-8 record in six seasons. He had fired Zach Smith the previous day.

Courtney ultimately divorced Zach in 2016.

Meyer then hired Smith at Ohio State in 2012.

The decision caps weeks of turmoil for one of the college football's most prominent programs, and one of the sport's most successful coaches.

The Ohio State University will have a conference at 8:50 p.m. Wednesday at the Longaberger Alumni House in regards to the ongoing Urban Meyer investigation. The case was dropped by police when the woman chose not to pursue charges, but Hyde was suspended three games.

Since Ohio State announced an independent investigation in April, more than 100 former students have come forward with accounts of sexual misconduct by Strauss. What punishment do you think Urban Meyer should receive?
