  • Courtney Smith's lawyer says client never contacted by Ohio State to discuss domestic assault allegations

Since then, Meyer has been placed on administrative leave and an investigation is being conducted to determine if the proper protocol was followed in reporting the allegations and, ultimately, Meyer's fate with the school.

An estimated 200 folks turned out Monday. In a statement released Friday via Twitter, Meyer admitted that he knew about the 2015 incidents and insisted he followed proper protocol.

It is unclear whether or not OSU policy requires a school representative to reach out to the alleged victim in a case like this. Zach Smith denied committing domestic abuse in a radio interview last week.

The 2015 allegation happened while Zach Smith was at Ohio State and he told multiple media outlets last week that he was on the road recruiting and was told by Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith to come back to Columbus after the accusation was made to police.

Meyer has gone 73-8 in six seasons at Ohio State, including a national championship in 2014 and two Big Ten titles after winning a pair of national titles at Florida.

According to Courtney Smith, Meyer's wife, Shelley, was aware of the ongoing abuse and told him of the incident. "While The Ohio State University has never contacted Ms. Smith to discuss these allegations, she will fully cooperate with the university's current investigation".

Firing Meyer without cause would cost Ohio State a almost $40 million buyout.

Outside the gates of Ohio Stadium, more than 100 fans chanted Meyer's name and sang the OSU fight song during a rally that lasted about 20 minutes.

Leveridge's statement was also apparently a response to accusations against her client, attacking Courtney Smith's credibility.

The lawyer for Courtney Smith said in a statement Tuesday that Courtney was not contacted by Ohio State University regarding the domestic abuse allegations against Zach Smith in 2015.

Zach Smith, a grandson of late Buckeyes coach Earle Bruce, who was a mentor to Meyer, also asserted that he had never harmed her and that the head coach handled the allegations appropriately.
