Ohio State coach Urban Meyer was placed on paid administrative leave Wednesday as the school announced it is investigating Courtney Smith’s claims that several people close to the head coach knew of a 2015 allegation of domestic violence against her ex-husband.

Offensive coordinator Ryan Day will be the team’s acting head coach during the investigation.

Courtney Smith, the ex-wife of a fired Ohio State assistant coach, stated that people around Urban Meyer, including his wife Shelley, knew about a 2015 domestic violence allegation against her husband.

This feels like Joe Paterno all over again. When will these people in position of power realize the same rules apply to them.
