Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer on administrative leave

The son of former Penn State coach Joe Paterno wrote in a blog post Wedneday that Ohio State needed to be pragmatic in its investigation into Meyer's actions (or possible lack thereof) regarding domestic abuse allegations against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith.

Ryan Day, who has been the team's offensive coordinator, will be acting head football coach while Meyer is on leave. In an interview with the sports news site Stadium released on Thursday, Courtney Smith said she told Meyer's wife Shelley Meyer that she was being abused in 2015. Smith played for Meyer at Bowling Green and began his coaching career under Meyer in Florida.

Of course, whether Shelley Meyer really did tell her husband about Zach Smith is the subject of Ohio State's investigation.

Meyer said he and his wife, Shelley Meyer, "actually both got involved because of our relationship with that family and advised counseling and wanted to help as we moved forward".
