Media get no access to coaches, players at Ohio State football practice

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

Amid Ohio State University's investigation into exactly what head football coach Urban Meyer knew and how he handled domestic violence allegations against former assistant coach Zach Smith, Buckeyes fans have taken to Ohio Stadium to show support for their coach.

Courtney Smith's attorney, Julia Leveridge, released a statement on Tuesday saying her client is a domestic violence victim and that she made "concerted efforts to press charges of domestic violence against her ex-husband".

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.

Fans like "Tennessee Jeff" Hamms and Stacy Elliott, the father of former Buckeye running back Ezekiel Elliott, pumped up fans with stories of Meyer's success at Ohio State, which includes a 2014 national title when Elliott was among the team's best players.

Smith was sacked in July after his ex-wife obtained a protective order against him in court, and after veteran college sports reporter Brett McMurphy published reports to Facebook on the 2015 incidents, in addition to one from 2009 in which Smith was arrested for assaulting her while she was pregnant. "We can't have someone like this coaching young men". "I said: 'That's fine, you should tell Urban".

Meyer later said in a statement that he was not "adequately prepared to discuss these sensitive personnel issues with the media" and admitted to having knowledge of the 2015 incident.

Furthermore, Leveridge stated that Courntey Smith has not received any compensation for two recent interviews in which she asserted that Shelley Meyer was aware of the alleged abuse at the hands of Zach Smith. Ohio State announced on Sunday night that the investigation is expected to be completed in two weeks.

The Buckeyes open their season September 1 at home against Oregon State.

Meyer was put on paid leave last week amid questions about what he knew and did about accusations of abuse made against former assistant Zach Smith in 2015.
