A Text Message Urban Meyer’s Wife Sent Him Has Been Revealed

Ohio State suspends Urban Meyer for three games after investigation

Ohio State suspends Urban Meyer for three games after investigation

On Wednesday night, Meyer said, "I did a poor job at media day". Later that year. Zach Smith came to her house wanting to take their son, but it wasn't his parenting night. Therefore, Urban Meyer is suspended through September 2, 2018, and for the games on the 1st, 8th and 15th.

Meyer will be suspended without pay until Sep. 2.

Zach Smith - the grandson of late Ohio State coach and Meyer mentor Earle Bruce - has never been criminally charged or convicted of abuse. Meyer and his wife sent the couple for counseling and came away doubtful of her allegations, according to the report delivered by independent investigators into Meyers handling of domestic violence allegations against Zach Smith.

"I followed my heart and not my head", Meyer said, quickly reading a written statement to reporters during a news conference after his punishment was announced.

"Coach Meyer and AD Gene Smith, although acting in good faith, did not report the (police) investigation of Zach Smith.to (the Title IX) compliance (department) as we believe they should have", said Mary Jo White, who headed the investigation. That investigation was completed on Sunday, Aug. 19. "I want to also apologize to Buckeye Nation", Meyer added.

Shelley Meyer once texted her husband of Zach Smith: "He drinks a lot and I am just not sure how stable he will be". This all stems from the controversy surrounding former assistant coach Zach Smith and his alleged serial domestic abuse of his ex-wife. "But I've grown over the years and I will be very cautious".

The day after Smith's firing, Meyer told reporters that he knew about the 2009 allegation, but didn't know about the 2015 allegation. "I should have demanded more from him". I needed to show more care and concern for the entirety of the situation and the people involved.

Meyer hasn't been allowed on campus during his leave, which also barred him from speaking with players, coaches and others associated with the football program. "I wish I'd done more, I wish I'd known more". I understand I could have done a better job in this situation. "We made this decision today based on the facts and our values as a university". But there was no intent to mislead.




The university's standards? How about your own? As a wife, I don't believe this for one second. I wish I could go back and make different decisions, but I can't. As seriously as we take college football — too seriously, clearly — were talking about unpaid 18-22 year olds playing a game. I have been a Buckeye my entire life.

Gene Smith entered Longaberger Alumni House around 5 p.m., nearly eight hours after trustees began closed-door deliberations.

The report states Meyer and Voltolini spoke on the Ohio State practice field on August 1 about college football reporter Brett McMurphy's story, which alleged Meyer was aware of Smiths' domestic abuse allegations. In the face of national scrutiny, Meyer promptly and publicly lied when asked about his knowledge of Smith's domestic violence accusations at Big Ten Media Days.

Meyer was aware that his assistant coach Zach Smith was arrested in 2009 for domestic assault of his pregnant wife while both coaches were at Florida.

Gene Smith took full responsibility for his actions during the press conference and accepted the consequences handed down by the president.

He then turned his focus to his scheduled news conference the following day, where he would be asked about Smith.

"Zach Smith married a woman he should not have married", Koffel said in a statement. "... But it wasn't because of that singular incident".

Possibly the most surreal part of the last month was seeing Meyer under fire for seeming to overlook allegations of misdeeds by an assistant coach whose resume was rather thin. One week earlier, the school newspaper, The Lantern, had requested under public-records law access to emails, texts and other materials related to Zach Smith for periods of 2015 and 2018.
