Buckeyes fan Jeff Hams, also known as “Tennessee Jeff Hams,” has organized a rally on the Ohio State campus in support of Football Coach Urban Meyer.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said Friday he followed proper reporting protocols regarding domestic violence allegations against an assistant coach in 2015. Meyer said at Big Ten media days in Chicago last week that he was unaware of allegations made by Courtney Smith in 2015 against Zach Smith that were reported to the police.
Ohio State University said this week that Meyer will be on paid administrative leave and Ryan Day will serve as acting head football coach. In a statement, Ohio State said it is “focused on supporting our players and on getting to the truth as expeditiously as possible.”
