101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Matt Parker discuss the latest turn of events involving Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer, who was placed on "administrative leave" by the school amidst accusations that he (and his wife) knew of - and ignored - instances of domestic abuse by now former assistant coach. To hear their thoughts on the situation, cue the video to the -1:17:40 mark.
The situation is summarized by espn.com:
Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer was placed on paid administrative leave Wednesday, as the school announced it is investigating Courtney Smith's claims that several people close to the coach knew of a 2015 allegation of domestic violence against her ex-husband, former Ohio State assistant football coach Zach Smith, who was fired in July.
Offensive coordinator Ryan Day will be the team's acting head coach during the investigation.
Courtney Smith told college football reporter Brett
McMurphy her allegations in a story posted on his Facebookpage earlier Wednesday.
"All the [coaches'] wives knew," Smith told McMurphy. "They all did. Every single one."
Smith (said) that she believes Meyer also knew at the time. "I do believe he knew, and instead he chose to help the abuser and enable the abuser and believe whatever story Zach was telling everybody,"
