(COLUMBUS) Ohio State has placed head football coach Urban Meyer on paid administrative leave as it investigates what the head coach knew about domestic abuse charges against former receivers coach Zach Smith.
College football reporter Brett McMurphy claims text messages and an exclusive interview with Zach Smith's ex-wife Courtney prove the Buckeye was aware of an incident in 2015.
Meyer has denied he knew anything about the alleged 2015 abuse. Meyer fired Zach Smith last week.
