Ohio State will rely on an outside law firm to investigate what coach Urban Meyer knew and did about domestic abuse accusations against a former assistant, a process expected to be completed within two weeks, the university said Sunday night. Jeff Hamms, who goes by Tennessee Jeff, organized the event, and led attendees in cheers and songs. "Obviously, he's done nothing wrong".

On Friday, Meyer acknowledged that he had "failed" to be "completely accurate" in comments he made at a Big Ten media days session the week before.

Meyer, 54, was placed on administrative leave Wednesday after a report surfaced that contradicted his claim that he was unaware in 2015 that Zach Smith, the Buckeyes wide receivers coach at the time, had been acused by his now former wife, Courtney Smith, of domestic abuse. Several of her anecdotes allege that a few of Meyer's assistant coaches, as well as his wife, Shelley, knew about Zach Smith's history of domestic abuse.

Addazio was on staff at Florida in 2009 when Smith, then a graduate assistant, was accused of shoving his pregnant ex-wife Courtney against a wall.

Smith wasn't fired until last month, while Meyer said during Big Ten Media day he only knew of a 2007 incident and nothing in 2015.

Hamms said the rally is to show support for who Meyer is as a person and coach. Meyer is under investigation for his handling of the matter.

Smith was part of Meyer's staff at Florida from 2005-09 and at Ohio State from 2012-17.

Ohio State opened preseason practice on Friday and starts the season September 1 against Oregon State.

"This guy's huge, man", Hamms told the Myrtle Beach Sun News.
