3. Zach Smith was fired July 23 after violating a civil protection order.
That stemmed from a disagreement over where the couple would exchange their son on May 12.
When it became public, Smith was terminated.
He faces an Aug. 3 court date in Delaware County (northern Columbus suburbs) regarding that charge.
Cleveland.com obtained nine reports from Powell, Ohio, police filed between Jan. 1, 2012 and late July, none of which resulted in charges being filed until the May 12 incident.
4. Urban Meyer explained July 24 what he knew and when.
In a previously scheduled appearance at Big Ten Media Days in Chicago, Meyer said he knew of the 2009 incident but not of 2015. Furthermore, he reported being told by staffers who looked into the latter event that nothing happened.
That statement has been the source of controversy this week in the wake of McMurphy’s report.
According to McMurphy, records from the Smith’s divorce were sealed until Wednesday morning at the request of Zach Smith, who wished to protect his employment.
Courtney Smith told Stadium she had told the families of the former couple about the abuse she suffered but was encouraged not to involve law enforcement.
5. Ryan Day named interim coach.
Several hours after McMurphy’s report and the publication of Courtney Smith’s interview with Stadium, Ohio State announced Meyer had been placed on paid administrative leave.
The Buckeyes are set to begin preseason practice Friday afternoon with Ryan Day, the team’s quarterbacks coach and one of its offensive coordinators, serving as the interim head coach.
How long the investigation of this matter will go is unknown.
Ohio State’s first game is Sept. 1 at home against Oregon State.
