Urban Meyer Knew Of Ex-Assistant's Domestic Violence History: Report

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer told reporters at last month’s Big Ten Media Day that he was unaware of a 2015 domestic violence incident former Buckeyes wide receiver Zach Smith and his now ex-wife, Courtney, claiming he was only informed of the situation right before his appearance. 

However, new developments suggest Meyer wasn’t telling the truth. According to a report by Brett McMurphy, Meyer did have knowledge of the 2015 incident in which Smith was arrested for felonious assault and domestic violence of his then-wife. Smith was fired last month after he was charged with criminal trespassing in relation to dropping his children off at his ex-wife’s home against her wishes.

McMurphy’s report outlines a string of interviews and text messages that shows Meyer was well aware of the situation, despite his denial.

Some details of McMurphy’s investigation include the following:

Additionally, McMurphy unearthed an exchange between Courtney and Lindsey Voltolini in the weeks following the 2015 incident. Lindsey’s husband, Brian Voltolini, is reportedly “considered one of Meyer’s most loyal staff members.”
