Ohio State has placed coach Urban Meyer on paid administrative leave while it investigates claims that his wife knew about allegations of abuse against an assistant coach years before he was sacked last week. And again, we don't know how much Meyer knew, though it seems likely that his wife was aware of the incidents - Courtney showed McMurphy a text in which Shelley said Zach "scares" her. Zach Smith has denied the allegations.

Ohio State announced a special working group Thursday night that will direct the investigation into football coach Urban Meyer.

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

"Gene (Smith) and I agree that being on leave during this inquiry will facilitate its completion", Meyer said in a statement.

Since returning to coaching, Meyer's program has been one of the most dominant in college football, and his players have mostly stayed out of major trouble.

At the Big Ten Media Days in Chicago last week, Urban said he knew about the domestic violence allegations against Zach in 2009 but not 2015.

She continued, "When somebody is crying out for help, I believe, the coach along with the coach's wife have a duty".

"There was nothing, I don't know who creates a story like that", Meyer said. Urban Meyer brought Smith, the grandson of late Buckeyes coach Earle Bruce, to Ohio State in 2012.

She also told the sports network Stadium that she sent photos to Meyer's wife, Shelley. He played for Meyer as a walk-on at Bowling Green, worked for him at Florida and was hired as the wide receivers coach when Meyer came to Ohio State in 2012.

Two police reports filed in 2015 in Ohio's Powell County, after the Smiths separated in June of that year, accused Zach Smith of abuse. Smith has never been criminally charged. Courtney Smith claims her ex-husband shoved her against a wall with his hands around her neck.

"I can't say it didn't happen because I wasn't there", Meyer said.

"All the (coaches') wives knew", Courtney Smith told McMurphy.
