Courtney Smith's lawyer says client never contacted by Ohio State to discuss domestic assault allegations

The statement also specified that Courtney Smith has never been paid for interviews over the alleged assaults and that she is "cautiously optimistic" the school will find the truth if "proper reporting protocol was followed upon learning of the ongoing abuse allegations against Zach Smith". "While The Ohio State University has never contacted Ms. Smith to discuss these allegations, she will fully cooperate with the university's current investigation".

"Bring your signs, paint your face, do whatever youve got to do - we want to be heard, we want our coach back", Hamms said in a video posted Sunday to his Facebook account.

Smith, who was also Ohio State's recruiting coordinator, was sacked on July 23, just days after reports surfaced that an order of protection had been filed against him by Courtney Smith.

The attorney also said in the statement that Courtney Smith is grateful for the support she's received and shot down some instances of "misinformation that has been circulating". Meyer told reporters he had known of the 2009 episode, which occurred when Smith was on his staff at the University of Florida, saying, "It came back to me that what was reported wasnt actually what happened".

So why are the men's accusations being so challenged and even summarily dismissed by some people before Ohio State's inquiry or several lawsuits that were filed in mid-July against the university are even close to being complete? Courtney Smith told Stadium that she believed Meyer knew of the 2015 allegations and that she told Meyer's wife Shelley and the wives of other Ohio State staffers about the accusation.
