Urban Meyer’s Probe Didn’t Try to Recover Deleted Texts: Report
Ohio State University’s investigation into football coach Urban Meyer’s handling of domestic-abuse allegations against his longtime assistant did not include a crucial element, TheWall Street Journal reports. Meyer’s phone was never tested to determine if he destroyed evidence, despite the fact that investigators believe Meyer asked a colleague how to delete old text messages from his work phone. The investigation’s findings were released last month. According to the Journal, the team of investigators also did not try to extract deleted messages from the phone of Gene Smith, athletic director at Ohio State. His device allegedly contained no text messages.
