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

Ohio State placed Meyer on paid administrative leave last week and said that an investigation should be complete within 14 days.

After initially denying any knowledge of the 2015 accusations against Zach Smith, Meyer has since recanted and now claims he followed protocol and told school officials.

Courtney Smith's attorney also felt the need to "set the record straight" about her client, including in the statement that Courtney was not paid for her interviews with Stadium, has tried to press charges against Zach and that Courtney has never committed a criminal offense.

The scandalous storm around Urban Meyer continues to gather, but supportive Buckeye fans gathered on Monday night in an attempt to help the suspended Ohio State coach weather it. An Ohio State spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Numerous fans in attendance took aim at Brett McMurphy, the independent journalist who first reported that Meyer likely knew about the allegations against Zach Smith in October 2015.

Ohio State's policy on sexual misconduct says anyone who supervises faculty, staff, students or volunteers has a duty to report 'when they receive a disclosure of sexual misconduct or become aware of information that would lead a reasonable person to believe that sexual misconduct may have occurred involving anyone covered under this policy'. "While The Ohio State University has never contacted Ms. Smith to discuss these allegations, she will fully cooperate with the university's current investigation".

The lawyer for Courtney Smith said in a statement Tuesday that Courtney was not contacted by Ohio State University regarding the domestic abuse allegations against Zach Smith in 2015.

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.

The attorney also said in the statement that Courtney Smith is grateful for the support she's received and shot down some instances of "misinformation that has been circulating".
