Lawyer: OSU hasn't contacted Courtney Smith

"Urban Meyer is on the hot seat and can be wrongfully fired from Ohio State", the petition states, adding, "it is up to us Buckeye Nation to help him not just for him but for THE Ohio State University and the great state of Ohio!"

Among the chanting, sign-waving crowd was Stacy Elliott, father of former Ohio State and current Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, who was suspended for six games last season while the National Football League investigated domestic violence accusations against him.

An estimated 200 folks turned out Monday.

Meyer admitted Friday that he knew of both alleged incidents at the time and "followed proper reporting protocols and procedures", acknowledging that his recent statements were inaccurate.

The attorney for Courtney Smith also says in a statement she has not been paid for interviews, and that she "has made concerted efforts to press charges of domestic abuse against her ex-husband".

It is unclear whether or not OSU policy requires a school representative to reach out to the alleged victim in a case like this.

In several recent interviews, Zach Smith has denied abusing Courtney.

Ohio State fired assistant coach Zach Smith on July 23 when his past allegations of domestic assault were brought to light by reporter Brett McMurphy. Courtney Smith told Stadium that she believed Meyer knew of the 2015 allegations and that she told Meyer's wife Shelley and the wives of other Ohio State staffers about the accusation.

The Buckeyes open the season September 1. "While The Ohio State University has never contacted Ms. Smith to discuss these allegations, she will fully cooperate with the university's current investigation".

Leveridge's statement was also apparently a response to accusations against her client, attacking Courtney Smith's credibility.

"As her attorney, I can tell you that Ms. Smith is cautiously optimistic that the Ohio State University's investigative committee will determine if proper reporting protocol was followed upon learning of the ongoing abuse allegations against Zach Smith", attorney Julia Leveridge said.
