Urban Meyer says he failed on media day dealing with Zach Smith

Meyer's punishment stems from a denial at Big Ten media days July 24 - one day after Smith was sacked - that he knew anything about alleged incidents in 2015 involving Zach Smith and his ex-wife, Courtney Smith.

"I ask that you continue to support the incredible coaches and student-athletes in our program", Meyer said in the statement addressed to "Buckeye Nation", "and I look forward to rejoining them soon". "Anything that happened to her body was all just defensive movements to remove myself form the situation and that's it.' I said, 'I'm not going to get charged for the incident because I did nothing wrong'".

Courtney Smith told McMurphy: "He took me and shoved me up against the wall, with his hands around my neck". He said Meyer told him then he would fire Smith if the head coach found out Smith hit his wife. "I never hit her". "However, I was not adequately prepared to discuss these sensitive personnel issues with the media, and I apologize".

"Please know that the truth is the ultimate power, and I am confident that I took appropriate action. I've never committed domestic abuse against her".

Zach Smith was sacked from Ohio State in July after he was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass during a dispute with Courtney Smith.

Meyer was placed on paid administrative leave Wednesday. In his Twitter statement, Meyer did not say what actions he did take regarding the incident three years ago.

But the agency said the safety and effectiveness of the devices haven't been evaluated or confirmed for "vaginal rejuvenation". The FDA urges anyone who suffered a complication linked to a vaginal "rejuvenation" treatment to report it through MedWatch .

At Big Ten Media Days last week, Meyer said he and his wife knew about an incident in 2009 at Florida and addressed it with both Zach and Courtney Smith, but knew nothing about the alleged 2015 incident that came to light recently.

Meyers, who is on paid leave, said in his statement that he intends to fully cooperate with the university as it conducts its own investigation.

Smith, the grandson of late Buckeyes coach Earle Bruce, a mentor to Meyer, played for Meyer when he was coach at Bowling Green in 2001-02. Courtney Smith has also said she told Shelley Meyer about the 2015 incidents and shared pictures of injuries through text messages that she shared with college football reporter Brett McMurphy.

Meyer is 73-8 in seven seasons in Columbus, highlighted by a 14-1 national championship season in 2014.
