Report: Meyer's wife was told of abuse by Buckeyes assistant
The ex-wife of former Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith says she told Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer's wife in 2015 that her husband had assaulted her, an incident Meyer said last week he was unaware of.
Courtney Smith gave an interview to Stadium and provided text messages to former ESPN reporter Brett McMurphy between her and Shelley Meyer and with the wives of other Buckeyes coaches. Courtney Smith also provided threatening texts she claims came from her ex-husband.
Messages left with Ohio State on Wednesday were not returned.
Zach Smith was fired last week after an Ohio court granted a domestic violence protective order to Courtney Smith.
