Bob Evans Suspends Partnership Deal With Ohio State Coach Urban Meyer

University of Florida Football Head Coach Urban Meyer\ is interviewed following the Gators' 56-10 win against the University of Hawaii Warriors in Ben Hill Griffin Jr. Stadium at Florida Field

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.

Courtney Smith provided screen shots of text message conversations with several women married to men on the coaching staff, which she says indicate that Meyer was aware of the problem.

Sitting down for an interview published by Stadium on Wednesday, Courtney Smith said, "I do believe [Meyer] knew, and instead he chose to help the abuser and enable the abuser and believe whatever story Zach was telling everybody".

Ohio State is also conducting an investigation, undoubtedly to find out if Meyer knew of the allegations against Zach Smith.

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

The allegations call into question Meyer's future at the school, one of the most visible in college sports.

The law exempts people who use force from prosecution if they fear for their lives. "This will go to the state attorney". After a couple of seconds elapse, Drejka is seen pulling out a gun and shooting McGlockton once in the chest.

At issue is whether Meyer knew about domestic violence allegations against Zach Smith made by his ex-wife, Courtney Smith.

Just days ago, the Ohio-based restaurant chain announced an endorsement deal with Meyer and proclaimed him its "head breakfast coach". "I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter", Meyer said.

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. In 2009, Smith was arrested on a charge that Courtney Smith later dropped.

In 2009, Zach Smith was accused of aggravated battery on his then-pregnant wife while he was working for Meyer in Gainesville, Florida.

Zach Smith was charged in May with misdemeanor criminal trespass.

The Smiths separated in 2015 before another alleged incident happened in which Courtney Smith claims Zach choked her and shoved her against a wall with the couple's two children present. "I don't know. Someone texted me that last night".
