Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer has been placed on administrative leave while the school conducts an investigation into claims that he did not take action on prior abuse allegations against one of his assistants.

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.

"It's a insane, unfortunate situation", Apple said after training camp practice on Thursday. "I can't say it didn't happen because I wasn't there", Meyer claimed at Big Ten Media Days last week. Ryan Day, who has been the team's offensive coordinator, will be acting head football coach while Meyer is on leave.

Courtney Smith told Stadium, a sports network, that she told Meyer's wife in 2015 about the alleged domestic violence.

For Meyer, the handling of former Buckeyes assistant Zach Smith is simply the latest episode in a disturbing pattern of playing dumb, even while keeping track of such minute details as a player's heart rate at practice.

Could Zimbabwe see its first change of party since independence?
Millions of people voted peacefully on Monday in the first poll since the army removed Robert Mugabe from power previous year . Global observers have been cross-checking the ballots, to see if there was no vote-rigging in yesterday's election.

Family, whom Smith said told her not to tell the police about her ex-husband's actions, out of fear that Zach would lose his lucrative coaching career. Smith was sacked July 23, days after an OH judge issued an order of protection that banned Smith from going within 500 feet of ex-wife Courtney Smith.

Separately, a court hearing for Zach Smith was postponed Thursday on a domestic protection order sought by his ex-wife.

The chain announced the endorsement deal just days ago, calling Meyer the chain's "head breakfast coach". "I said: 'That's fine, you should tell Urban'". Former ESPN reporter Brett McMurphy made the matter public on July 23, and Meyer fired Smith within hours. Zach Boren, a free agent fullback who went to Ohio State, said the allegations against Smith from his ex-wife have nothing to do with Meyer.

Of course, there could be more factors in play than just whether Stoops wants to coach again, including whether athletics director Gene Smith gets caught up in the controversy.
