Last month, talking to reporters at Big Ten Media Days, Meyer said that he didn't know about 2015 domestic violence claims against now-fired assistant coach Zach Smith.
Meyer's punishment stems from a statement made at Big Ten media days July 24 - one day after Smith was sacked - denying that he knew anything about the alleged incidents in 2015.
Meyer admitted that he did not handle the situation correctly during Big Ten media days, saying that his job is to be "clear, compassionate and, most of all, completely accurate". Unfortunately, at Big Ten Media days on July 24, I failed on many of these fronts.
I've written this before and I will reiterate it here: Ohio State should not have to fire Meyer because Meyer should voluntarily step down on his own for being an incredible hypocrite. "I never hit her, I never got arrested, never got charged, I got investigated twice, and no charges came about because I didn't do anything physically to harm her".
ESPN has reached out to Courtney Smith's attorney regarding the texts. As the son of an fantastic woman and the husband to another and, as the father of two incredible young women, those who know me best know the admiration and respect I have for all women.
When asked during his media session about his knowledge of any allegations against Smith in 2015, Meyer said, "I was never told about anything. I never hit her".
How convenient that nearly simultaneously to Meyer's statement being released on Friday, Zach Smith did an interview with ESPN in which he used words like "honest" and "heartfelt" to describe Meyer's statement.
How else, though, did he say what he said without intending to be inaccurate or misleading? Murphy asks if Meyer should have looked further and Smith said "No, he's not an investigator, he's not a cop, he's not a detective".
Meyer also didn't go through the timeline of how he was alerted to a domestic issue in 2015 and who he reported it to, which will be central to the university's decision as to whether he remains coach.
On if Meyer gets fired: "I would be heartbroken for Ohio State, for the players, for him and his family because it's not right". Coming from somebody who knows.
"It's as heartfelt, honest and as true a statement as I've ever heard", he said. If he loses his job, it's flat wrong.
"Over the past several days I have been portrayed as being indifferent to domestic violence and as someone who did not take appropriate action when warranted", Meyer said. "I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter". He said he would address questions in a public forum "at the appropriate time".
However, in a statement posted to Twitter Friday, Meyer said he'd "failed" when he made those remarks. But for now, out of respect for the ongoing inquiry, I will refrain at this time.
