Ohio State is investigating Courtney Smith's claims that several people close to Meyer knew of a 2015 allegation of domestic violence against her ex-husband, former Ohio State assistant football coach Zach Smith, who was sacked in July.
Any downward trend for the Buckeyes has been relatively short-lived, as their last three coaches - Urban Meyer, Jim Tressel and John Cooper - were all able to transition out of potential turbulence and quickly get Ohio State back into the top 10. "This allows the team to conduct training camp with minimal distraction. I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter".
Co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day has been named acting head coach.
Zach Smith had been on Meyer's staff since Meyer's days at the University of Florida, but he was sacked last week after McMurphy dug up multiple police reports alleging domestic violence against Zach Smith.

When Meyer was hired by the Buckeyes, Smith again joined the staff as a receivers coach and ace recruiter. 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.
Urban said if he had, Zach would've been fired. Police reports obtained by cleveland.com detail nine domestic incidents involving Smith and his now ex-wife Courtney between 2012 and last month. He can either be one of the guys in Ohio State history, or the guy at Clemson. As you got deeper and deeper into the story it got progressively worse, and since then I haven't seen any indication that from that school or from anyone else that he is. Courtney Smith's allegations - including the text messages - were reported by former ESPN reporter Brett McMurphy on his Facebook page and in a video interview with Smith. Smith has never been criminally charged.
Meyer told reporters last week that he didn't know anything about the 2015 incident.
She continued, "When somebody is crying out for help, I believe, the coach along with the coach's wife have a duty. No, and I asked some people back at the office to call and say what happened and they came back and said they know nothing about it".
