Ohio State University is placing  football coach Urban Meyer on paid leave amid abuse claims filed against  his former assistant. The university took the action today as it investigates a report that Meyer was aware of assault allegations made  against former assistant coach Zach Smith by his ex-wife Courtney in  2015.  Meyer fired Smith last week, but previously denied being aware of  the incident.  In a statement, Meyer said he supports the university's  decision to place him on leave during the inquiry.  The coach also said  he eagerly looks forward to resolution of the matter.
