Lawyer: OSU hasn't contacted Courtney Smith

Courtney Smith's lawyer says client never contacted by Ohio State to discuss domestic assault allegations Ohio State Fans Hold Cringeworthy Rally For Urban Meyer

"Bring your signs, paint your face, do whatever youve got to do - we want to be heard, we want our coach back", Hamms said in a video posted Sunday to his Facebook account. When asked about the situation at Big Ten Media Days, Urban Meyer denied knowing anything of the assault allegations.

McMurphy's bombshell report last week revealed 2015 domestic violence accusations against Smith.

Smith, who was also Ohio State's recruiting coordinator, was sacked on July 23, just days after reports surfaced that an order of protection had been filed against him by Courtney Smith. "I said: 'That's fine, you should tell Urban". Courtney Smith told Stadium that she believed Meyer knew of the 2015 allegations and that she told Meyer's wife Shelley and the wives of other Ohio State staffers about the accusation.

Meyer later said in a statement that he was not "adequately prepared to discuss these sensitive personnel issues with the media" and admitted to having knowledge of the 2015 incident.

The paper referred to a Saturday Tweet by Trump which said "Tariffs are working far better than anyone anticipated". The overall USA trade deficit jumped 7.3 percent in June and is on track to hit a 10-year high, noted China Daily .

Meyer added that there were "more questions to be answered" and he pledged to "cooperate fully" with investigators hired by OSU.

Among the chanting, sign-waving crowd was Stacy Elliott, father of former Ohio State and current Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, who was suspended for six games last season while the National Football League investigated domestic violence accusations against him.

In the meantime, a "Save Urban Meyer" petition posted Thursday at Change.org has almost reached its goal of 25,000 signatures.

In wake of the allegations against Meyer, Ohio State has placed the head coach on paid administrative leave while they conduct their own investigation into the matter.

Zach Smith wasn't charged in either 2009 or 2015.

In opening and closing, the statement also says that Courtney Smith will have no further comments until all legal matters are resolved.

Zach Smith told Columbus radio station 105.7 The Zone that Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith questioned him during the 2015 football season about the allegations made by Courtney Smith that fall.
