Ohio State University put coach Urban Meyer on leave on Wednesday while it investigates allegations the football coach knew about a 2015 domestic violence incident involving a former assistant years before the assistant was sacked last week. At the time of the charge, Zach Smith's attorney said Courtney Smith had accused him of driving to her apartment after she told him they would meet elsewhere so he could drop off their son. Courtney Smith said all the wives on staff were aware of her situation.
Meyer originally claimed that he knew nothing about two alleged domestic-violence incidents against Zach Smith in 2015.
Ryan Day will serve as interim head coach while the investigation is ongoing.

She told the Stadium sports network that her ex-husband had abused her, starting in 2009.
