According to a report by college football insider Brett McMurphy, Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer had direct knowledge of domestic abuse allegations against former assistant coach Zach Smith.

In the report, posted to his Facebook page and posted below, McMurphy shows text messages that were sent by Smith's ex-wife Courtney Smith to Meyer's wife. 

"All the [coaches'> wives knew," Smith told McMurphy. "They all did. Every single one."

Just last week during Big Ten Media Days, Urban Meyer denied having knowledge of two domestic abuse allegations against his former receivers coach.

However, in a separate interview with Stadium, 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," Smith said.


With what we know now, the Morning Show with John Fricke and Hugh Douglas wonder if Ohio State has any other option but to fire Urban Meyer?
