Former Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith is expected to meet with university investigators early this week.

Ohio State is now investigating into head coach Urban Meyer, trying to determine what he knew about longtime assistant and former wide receivers coach Zach Smith's alleged domestic abuse.

Jeff Snook, who has experience reporting on Ohio State football, recently posted a couple reports involving Smith, including an allegation that Herman, the current Longhorns coach and former Buckeyes offensive coordinator under Urban Meyer, was the one who tipped McMurphy to Smith's history of abuse allegations.

Meyer admitted that he knew Courtney accused Smith of domestic violence in 2015, after initially saying the opposite at Big Ten media days. On the same day, Ohio State placed Meyer on paid administrative leave while the university investigates Meyer's conduct.

And, according to his attorney Bradley Koffel, Smith will answer any and all questions from the committee.

"We're not trying to run from the truth, but we're not the only ones with warts on us", Koffel told ESPN.

Ohio State has appointed a special working group spearheaded by Mary Jo White - a woman who has previously led high-profile inquiries involving several National Football League teams - to determine if anyone at the university acted inappropriately while dealing with the 2015 incident.
