Ohio State University is placing football coach Urban Meyer on paid leave amid abuse claims filed against his former assistant. The university took the action yesterday as it investigates a report that Meyer was aware of assault allegations made against former assistant coach Zach Smith by his ex-wife Courtney in 2015. Meyer fired Smith last week, but previously denied being aware of the incident. In a statement, Meyer said he supports the university's decision to place him on leave during the inquiry. The coach also said he eagerly looks forward to resolution of the matter.
