Former Gators head coach Urban Meyer is put on paid leave by Ohio State University. The school is investigating whether Meyer knew about the domestic abuse allegations against former assistant coach Zach Smith in 2015. Smith was fired by OSU on July 24th. On July 25th Meyer told the members of the media that he knew nothing about the incident prior to Smith's firing. The ex-wife of Smith, Courtney Smith was quoted in a recent report saying all the wives of the coaches on Meyer's staff, including his own wife Shelly, knew about the abuse for years.
