Those investigating Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer's handling of domestic violence allegations against his former receivers coach have yet to contact the man accused, Zach Smith. Ohio State announced that Meyer would be put on administrative leave on August 1 and Meyer admitted Friday that he knew of the allegations against Smith in 2015. Meyer denied knowledge of 2015 incidents, which was refuted by Brett McMurphy's second report, which included texts between Courtney Smith and Meyer's wife, alluding to Urban's knowledge of the abuse.

Courtney, according to the report, allegedly told Zach that she was going to take down him and Meyer.

"I was out recruiting on a bye week, I was on a practice field and I found out about the abuse because Gene Smith called me and said Zach you need to be on the next plane home, your ex-wife has brought forth domestic abuse allegations", Zach Smith told 105.7 FM in Columbus, Ohio, Aug. 3.

She was driven by revenge when she found out her husband had cheated on her, Bruce said. "And she said she would take Urban down, too", she said. She wanted to do as much damage as possible. Ohio State won the 2014 national championship.

"She has been planning this for some time".

Transfer: Fosu-Mensah leaves Manchester United
The Dutchman spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace , where he made 21 appearances in all competitions. Fulham are believed to be in talks with Atletico Madrid over a move for Spanish winger Oscar Pinchi .

One thing that has to be considered in this new report is Snook's relationship to both Meyer and Zach Smith and the university.

The story has reportedly been corroborated by Courtney Smith's mother.

Reached this afternoon, Tina Carano would only communicate via text messages and backed Lynn Bruce's version. "I do not believe he actually intentionally swung or punched her ... no".

Smith's wife, Courtney, came forward last month to allege she was abused by Zach Smith on multiple occasions and a 2015 incident where she reported to Powell police she'd been physically assaulted was known to many inside Ohio State's athletic department.
