College football reporter Brett McMurphy, the same guy who broke the news about OSU wide receivers coach Zach Smith's firing following multiple allegations of domestic abuse, posted screenshots of text conversations between Zach's ex-wife Courtney and Urban Meyer's wife Shelley, photos of Courtney's injuries, along with an extensive report of his other findings on Facebook.

Bob Evans Restaurants dropped an endorsement deal with Ohio State University coach Urban Meyer on Thursday amid reports that he'd kept silent about a colleague's alleged domestic violence incident. "This allows the team to conduct training camp with minimal distraction. I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter", Meyer said.

Football practice starts on Friday, with offensive coordinator Ryan Day serving as the interim coach. Zach Smith pleaded not guilty last month. She asked for the order after a July 20 disagreement and the court action resulted in Zach Smith being fired from Ohio State, where he was set to make $340,000 for the 2018 season.

Family, whom Smith said told her not to tell the police about her ex-husband's actions, out of fear that Zach would lose his lucrative coaching career. But Meyer said he knew nothing of the 2015 abuse allegations until the day he let Smith go.

Jay Paterno, who was an assistant coach to his father and is now an elected Penn State trustee, said in a blog post that "we should wait for facts" before calling for the Buckeyes coach to be fired.

Meyer said in a statement that he and Gene Smith, Ohio State's athletic director, "agree that being on leave during this inquiry will facilitate its completion".

"If you see something, say something", Muschamp said.

This quote came five years after Meyer had learned about an earlier instance of domestic violence between Zach Smith and Courtney Smith, while she was pregnant with one of the couple's children.

Zach Smith was charged in May with misdemeanor criminal trespass.

"I got a text last night that something happened in 2015, and there was nothing", Meyer told reporters at the Big Ten Media Days, adding, "I don't know who creates a story like that". First I heard about that was last night.
