David Hookstead | Reporter

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer was placed on paid administrative leave Wednesday.

Both Meyer and the Buckeyes football program has been engulfed in scandal after it was revealed Meyer might have had knowledge that assistant coach Zach Smith was facing allegations of domestic violence in 2015. Meyer denied he had any knowledge of any incidents a week ago during Big Ten media days. It was announced moments ago that he would be put on leave from the program, according to multiple reports. (RELATED: OHIO STATE’S FOOTBALL COACH DENIED KNOWING ABOUT ABUSE ALLEGATIONS.

Brett McMurphy broke the story earlier today that text messages allegedly exist between Meyer’s wife Shelly and Smith’s former wife Courtney, and they reportedly indicate the Buckeyes head coach knew what was going on.

This is a rapidly developing situation. Please check back for details.
