Zach Smith's ex-wife accuses him of abusing her for years, most recently in 2015.

In an interview with McMurphy, Courtney reportedly said she and Shelley regularly talked about Zach's abuse in 2015.

This is a he-said, she-said case and Urban did nothing wrong, they say.

Urban Meyer is suspended from Ohio State. Texas assistants Tim Beck and Stan Drayton were at Ohio State through 2016 and 2014 respectively. Shelley Meyer is a registered nurse and is employed as an instructor at Ohio State. Both Meyer and his wife could be in violation of Ohio State's Title IX sexual misconduct policy on reporting allegations of domestic violence against university employees. He played for Meyer as a walk-on at Bowling Green, worked for him at Florida and was hired as the wide receivers coach when Meyer came to Ohio State in 2012. Meyer will continue to collect his $7.6 million annual salary. The season starts September 1 with a game against Oregon State in Columbus.

The company has yet to turn a profit but this quarter's loss is more than twice as high as in the second quarter previous year . Musk was also enthusiastic about the premise of Tesla owners receiving prizes for completing the Atari titles.

Paterno wrote his post before Meyer was put on leave by Ohio State.

Either way, Meyer has put his employer in a hard situation, as evidenced by him being placed on leave less than two days prior to the start of the team's fall camp.

You can say you would've handled things differently, but that overlooks the larger, much more important, issue.

If the allegations against Meyer are true, the only option for Ohio State is to terminate his contract.

These include a Malaysian woman and a climber from South Sulawesi province who died in Mount Rinjani National Park . By 1 p.m. the agency had recorded 104 aftershocks , with the largest measuring 5.7 on the Richter scale.

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.

Meyer did face some criticism in 2013 for allowing running back Carlos Hyde to return to the team after he was charged with striking a woman in a bar. Those messages include pictures of a bruised Courtney Smith. It is not clear what contact Meyer had, if any, with university officials about the situation until Smith was sacked last month.

The crux of what investigators will be looking for is whether Meyer followed proper protocols when and if he received information about allegations regarding Smith. A hearing has been scheduled for Friday. When asked about the 2015 allegations at Big Ten Media Days last week, Meyer denied any knowledge of the incidents.

Meyer acknowledged last week that he had been aware of a 2009 domestic-abuse incident in Gainesville.

"I can't say it didn't happen because I wasn't there", Meyer said. "I was never told about anything ... never had a conversation about it, so I know nothing about that". "I don't know who creates a story like that". First I heard about that was last night. I told people to go find out for me.
