On July 24, Meyer had denied knowledge of Zach Smith's alleged 2015 abuse while acknowledging he knew of Smith's alleged 2009 abuse that occurred while Smith was on Meyer's staff at the University of Florida.

Chants of "Urban Meyer" and "O-H-I-O" rang out as more than 100 Ohio State football fans rallied outside Ohio Stadium to show support for the embattled football coach.

An attorney for the ex-wife of former Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith says the school never contacted his client in regards to domestic assault allegations that were made against the ex-Buckeyes assistant. "We believe the University must prioritize the safety and well-being of others above all else".

Leverage also said that Courtney Smith did not get paid for interviews she granted to reporters.

'Ms. Smith is cautiously optimistic that The Ohio State University's investigative committee will determine if proper reporting protocol was followed upon learning of the ongoing, abuse allegations against Zach Smith, ' Leveridge said in the statement.

Zach Smith wasn't charged in either 2009 or 2015.

The school press release issued Sunday night indicated that former Ohio House Speaker Jo Ann Davidson was appointed to head up the "independent working group" looking into Meyer's actions.

What Meyer knew and when he knew it became a question after college football writer Brett McMurphy reported that Courtney Smith had told Meyer's wife Shelley about the 2015 incidents and shared pictures of injuries through text messages that she shared with McMurphy. Numerous attendees at the rally had signs blaming ESPN, a media company that has had little role in the original reporting of the saga.

According to a statement from Courtney Smith's attorney, Julia Leveridge, the school "never contacted Ms. Smith to discuss these allegations, ' but, 'she will fully cooperate with the university's current investigation" into the handling of the matter by head coach Urban Meyer.
