"We decided to make a change". Meyer said he became involved in counseling Smith after he learned of the incident.
"I do understand the value that the Ohio State University is bigger than all of us", Meyer said. "The decision was made, it's time to move forward". I did some homework and I asked people to go find out for me. She was granted a personal protection order on Friday that requires him to stay 500 feet away from her, after Smith was charged earlier in the week with misdemeanor criminal trespassing for dropping their son off at her home instead of a prearranged public location.
Instead he tried to sweep away accountability, saying what was reported about the 2009 incident "wasn't actually what happened" and attempting to discredit news reports about a 2015 incident between Smith and his ex-wife that an OH police department later verified to reporters. But they sent an email at 4:50 p.m. ET saying they discovered records of those incidents after further review. Six years later, he was arrested for felonious assault and domestic battery, again directed at his ex-wife, with whom he would split in 2016.
Smith pleaded not guilty last month.
Two weeks later, the police returned to the same residence to investigate a "menace by stalking claim". No charges were filed in that incident.

Underground lake with liquid salt water found on Mars
It's less powerful in some ways, although if there were a pool of pure water, it is possible that its instruments could find it. Orosei and colleagues used a radar instrument called MARSIS aboard the Mars Express spacecraft to make their discovery.
A Powell Police spokeswoman said that the original records request was denied because Zach Smith isn't specifically mentioned in the two complaints from 2015. Should he have given Smith a second chance in the first place? The Powell PD confirmed that Zach Smith was the suspect in those reports and chose to release the information after discussing the matter with its legal counsel. It turns out there might have been some kind of issue with the records when Ohio State inquired about them.
"It was in the best interests of our team", Meyer said at Big Ten media days in Chicago.
Last week's legal proceedings were described by Meyer as something that made him "press pause and gather information, get [his] mind right, gather energy, and then step up to do the right thing". His answer to reporters before his main news conference Tuesday makes it seem like he had no idea the investigation even happened. One of its deepest position groups is receiver, where Parris Campbell, Terry McLaurin and Austin Mack are all back from a year ago. Charges in that instance were dismissed.
Smith, a grandson of former Ohio State head coach Earle Bruce, coached wide receivers and served as the recruiting coordinator for the Buckeyes. He also played for Meyer at Bowling Green. And the common retort-he's a coach, what do you expect him to say-rings more and more hollow. We operate in a climate where it's downright hard to commit an act so egregious to be banned from football-or any other game. "It's a huge loss, but I think we'll move forward".
But Meyer did bristle somewhat at the notion that the only reason that he made the move to fire Smith was due to the media backlash - and that his knowledge before could have preempted the situation. The expectation is that offensive quality control assistant Brian Hartline, a former OSU wide receiver who played seven years in the National Football League, will be promoted.
