Ohio State University head football coach Urban Meyer apologized Friday for failing to mention the name of former assistant coach Zach Smith's ex-wife and alleged domestic abuse victim, Courtney Smith, at a Wednesday press conference announcing that Meyer would be suspended. “My words and demeanor on Wednesday did not show how seriously I take relationship violence. I sincerely apologize,” Meyer wrote on Twitter. “I sincerely apologize to Courtney Smith and her children for what they have gone through.” The university suspended Meyer for three games without pay, and blocked him from interacting with the team until Sept. 2 after an investigation concluded that he did know about 2015 domestic violence police investigation into his former assistant coach, and failed to report the investigation to the school. Meyer has maintained that he did not know about the text messages Courtney Smith sent to his wife showing injuries.
