Ohio State says special, independent board formed in Urban Meyer investigation

03 August 2018

Meyer was placed on paid administrative leave shortly after Brett McMurphy's reporting about his potential knowledge of 2015 domestic abuse allegations against former assistant coach Zach Smith.

Ohio State University will be using a "special, independent board working group" to investigate the domestic abuse allegations of the wife of a former assistant football coach, the school announced on Thursday afternoon.

Courtney Smith provided screen shots of text message conversations with several women married to men on the coaching staff, which she says indicate that Meyer was aware of the problem. "This allows the team to conduct training camp with minimal distraction".

Hertfordshire's Lewis Hamilton secures Hungarian F1 Grand Prix victory
Hamilton's victory is another blow to Vettel, who has lost 32 points to his rival in the space of only eight days. In lap 32 his lead was 14.5 seconds, but when he drove to the box in lap 39 , it shrank to 7.8 seconds.

Ohio State co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day will serve as acting head coach in Meyer's absence.

If Meyer was aware if the 2009 incident involving Zach Smith - he was.

Zach Smith's attorney, Brad Koffel, said in a statement to ESPN on Wednesday: "Once he gets his chance to tell his side of events, don't be surprised when it is corroborated by every police who ever responded to Ms. Smith's calls".

Under the settlement, the Trump administration will allow downloadable guns for unlimited public distribution in any form. A 1988 federal law - drafted with NRA support - barred the manufacture, sale or possession of an undetectable firearm.

Courtney: "Restraining orders don't do anything in Ohio-I tried to get protection order which is what started this whole investigation". In 2009, Smith was arrested on a charge that Courtney Smith later dropped.

The extension also increased Meyer's salary to $7.6m for 2018, an $800,000 raise over what he was scheduled to earn.

"Due to the ongoing investigation, football coaches and student-athletes will not be available for interviews until further notice and all practices will be closed", Ohio State spokesman Jerry Emig said in an email. "I've seen other coaches who would keep players and try to rehab them ... but I think it (zero tolerance on domestic violence) should be a rule in all of college football". The Smiths separated in June 2015 and divorced in 2016.

Several opposition parties call for fresh elections
With smaller parties and independents winning at least 45 seats, it should not be hard for the PTI to form alliances and elect Khan as prime minister.

That figure makes him not only the highest-paid state employee in OH, but the highest-paid public-school football coach in the United States. "I was never told about anything and nothing ever came to light".
