After yesterday's Brett McMurphy report on the text messages that indicate that Meyer was aware of domestic violence allegations against former assistant Zach Smith, the core values graphic in Ohio State's facilities started being passed around.
Though he publicly denied knowing anything about domestic violence allegations against one of his coaches in 2015, new evidence has reportedly come to light that suggests Ohio State football head coach Urban Meyer may have lied.
Meyer said he and athletic director Gene Smith agree that being on leave during the inquiry was best for the investigation and the team.
The group also will "be available to provide consultation and advice and assist with communication to the full board on the matter", the university said in a statement.
It's alleged that Shelley Meyer had intimate knowledge that the wife of former OSU wide receivers coach Zach Smith, Courtney Smith, was being physically abused by the assistant.
Meyer said he was aware of an incident involving Zach and Courtney Smith in 2009, while they were still married. Shelley Meyer allegedly told Courtney Smith that "she was going to have to tell Urban" about the abuse.
Isner finally shakes Zverev, advances to semis in Atlanta — ATP roundup
British number two Cameron Norrie was beaten by American Ryan Harrison in the semi-finals of the Atlanta Open. After reaching the Wimbledon semis earlier this month, Isner is looking for his fifth title at Atlanta.
Meyer has led the Buckeyes to a 73-8 record since he took over the program in 2012.
Meyer is out of the frying pan and now we'll see if he goes into the fryer, as his Ohio State future is very much in doubt.
Since returning to coaching, Meyer's program has been one of the most dominant in college football, and his players have mostly stayed out of major trouble.
At issue is whether Meyer knew about domestic violence allegations against Zach Smith made by his ex-wife, Courtney Smith. Smith obtained a restraining order shortly after the incident but charges were never filed.
Meyer told reporters at Big Ten media days on July 24 that he knew nothing about the allegations. Most troubling, that includes an alleged incident of domestic abuse on October 25, 2015, shortly before the couple divorced. "No, and I asked some people back at the office to call and say what happened and they came back and said they know nothing about it".
