Urban Meyer Already Has a Path to a Comeback

Urban Meyer Already Has a Path to a Comeback

Meyer was placed on administrative leave by Ohio State on Wednesday after a report emerged that said Meyer knew that his former wide receivers coach, Zach Smith, had been accused of domestic violence by his now ex-wife in 2015.

Urban Meyer has been placed on paid administration leave.

"It's a insane, unfortunate situation", Apple said after training camp practice on Thursday. "I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter", Meyer said. Ryan Day, who has been the team's offensive coordinator, will be acting head football coach while Meyer is on leave.

We also can't be certain that Zach Smith's alleged actions were as well-known within the Ohio State coaching staff as Courtney Smith says they were, though the text messages she shared with reporter Brett McMurphy seem to indicate that, at the very least, Shelley Meyer, Urban's wife, and several other coaches' wives knew of the horrific allegations.

Smith, who was arrested for aggravated battery on a pregnant victim in 2009 while working for Meyer at Florida, was sacked by Ohio State in July after he was arrested on a criminal trespassing charge. It's not been confirmed by Courtney Smith or anyone else that Shelley told Urban what she knew.

"Shelley said she was going to have to tell Urban", Courtney Smith told Stadium said.

More likely, though, market buzzards are holding off because of how quickly some analysts are turning on the company. North American sales were up 44 percent year-over-year to $32.17 billion, with operating income at $1.84 billion.

"I can't say it didn't happen because I wasn't there", Urban Meyer said during Big Ten media days.

Separately, a court hearing for Zach Smith was postponed Thursday on a domestic protection order sought by his ex-wife. As the Buckeyes played that season under interim coach Luke Fickell, the only story line that mattered was Ohio State's six-month courtship of Meyer, who was sitting out the season to hit the reset button on his health and career after "retiring" from Florida.

"Sometimes you get in life something you don't like ... you have to do something different", he told USA TODAY Sports in December.

The issue is whether or not Meyer protected an assistant coach, Zach Smith, after domestic violence allegations were made against Smith.

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. Smith has never been criminally charged. I told people to go find out for me.
