Meyer says he followed protocol for 2015 abuse allegations (copy)

Meyer says he followed protocol for 2015 abuse allegations (copy)

Two days after he was placed on paid administrative leave and less than two weeks after Zach Smith was sacked, Ohio State Buckeyes head football coach Urban Meyer has released a statement on Twitter Friday afternoon. She also said that she'd shared photos of bruises from the alleged abuse with Meyer's wife, Ohio State nursing instructor Shelley Meyer, and asked her to tell her husband. She asked for the order after a July 20 disagreement and the court action resulted in Zach Smith being fired from Ohio State, where he was set to make $340,000 for the 2018 season.

In his statement, Meyer discussed how he did report the 2015 Smith incident. Don't you lie to me.

As for Meyer's denial at the Big Ten media days in Chicago of what was happening, Smith said, "To be honest, that's all confusing to me".

"Unfortunately, at Big Ten Media days on July 24, I failed on many of these fronts", he said in his statement.

Unless head coach Urban Meyer and athletic director Gene Smith do what needs to be done.

"I can't say it didn't happen because I wasn't there", Meyer said last month.

"I explained both sides of the story", Smith said during the interview, which will air on SportsCenter Friday (ESPN, 6 p.m.). I volunteered to do that. I was never told about anything and nothing ever came to light. The report alleges Meyer knew of the assault allegations against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith. How is a man who is known as one of the most-prepared and meticulous coaches in the history of college football not prepared to answer questions about a topic he very well knew would come into question? "I would know it's over'".

Meyer was placed on administrative leave as the university conducts an independent investigation into what Meyer knew and when regarding accusations of abuse involving wide receivers coach Zach Smith, who was sacked late last month.

Tucker on Paul Manafort Trial: Lead Prosecutor Weissmann 'Avenging Hillary's Defeat'
One accounting trick saved Manafort $500,000 in taxes, she said. "I very much regret it", she told prosecutor Uzo Asonye . Similar to prior witnesses, Laporta testified that Gates and Manafort were in lockstep but that Manafort was in charge.

In the interview with Stadium, Courtney Smith said she believed that Meyer knew about the allegations.

Meyer took the helm at Ohio State, one of the country's winningest programs, from Luke Fickell, a longtime Ohio State assistant who ascended to the top job for a year after the once-heralded championship coach Jim Tressel resigned. When it came out, Ohio State issued a no-comment: "We are not going to comment at this time on the situation regarding Zach Smith".

Information from ESPN's Dan Murphy was used in this report. Gene Smith called me. At that point, Ohio State knew of at least two accusations of domestic violence against Smith. "I told the police anything that happened to her body was a defensive action to remove myself from the situation".

"I'm so sorry! Zach Smith said". (Meyer) looked at me: 'If you hit her, you're fired immediately'.

Smith does not think Meyer should be fired for misleading the public. In a statement, Ohio State said it is "focused on supporting our players and on getting to the truth as expeditiously as possible".

"In a fit about I don't know what, she grabbed a can of tobacco that I had and went to pour it on me, and when I went to stop her pouring it on me, I closed the can and it sliced her hand".

The university said it also notified Franklin County Children Services, university police and USA Diving at the time. I pushed her buttons a lot, I knew how to get her going.
