Jeff Snook, who has experience reporting on Ohio State football, recently posted a couple reports involving Smith, including an allegation that Herman, the current Longhorns coach and former Buckeyes offensive coordinator under Urban Meyer, was the one who tipped McMurphy to Smith's history of abuse allegations.

Meyer admitted that he knew Courtney accused Smith of domestic violence in 2015, after initially saying the opposite at Big Ten media days. Ohio State has placed Meyer on paid administrative leave pending the results of an investigation into how he and others at the university handled allegations made by Smith's ex-wife.

Smith was sacked from his position as the Buckeyes' wide receiver coach in late July after details of domestic abuse allegations made against him years earlier came to light in a report from college football reporter Brett McMurphy.

It could have been more such was Leeds' control of a game against one of the teams expected to challenge for promotion. Leeds gatecrashed Frank Lampard's party with a powerful attacking display that swept Derby aside 4-1 at Pride Park.

The university formed an "independent working group" the following day to conduct their investigation into Meyer, which it said it would complete within 14 days.

Smith's attorney, Brad Koffel, told ESPN that his client plans to answer all of the investigator's questions. He has since apologized, and said that he reported the accusation to the proper channel and followed protocol.

Former Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith is expected to meet with university investigators early this week.
