Courtney Smith spoke on Monday with the investigative team hired by Ohio State’s board of trustees examining football coach Urban Meyer’s handling of her 2015 domestic abuse allegations.
Smith’s attorney, Julia Leveridge, released a statement Monday afternoon saying that her client was accompanied by her attorneys and “welcomed the opportunity to speak to the investigators.”
Leveridge did not provide any other details.
“Courtney continues to be thankful for the support she has received during this time,” Leveridge wrote.
Courtney Smith alleges that she was the victim of domestic abuse in 2015 by her ex-husband, former Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith.

Meyer said at Big Ten media days in Chicago that he did not know in 2015 about the allegations. In an Aug 3. post on Twitter, Meyer apologized for how he mishandled a reporter’s questions in Chicago. Ohio State placed Meyer on paid administrative leave on Aug. 1.
Zach Smith said last week that he expected to meet with investigators early this week. His attorney, Brad Koffel, declined comment when asked if his client had the meeting on Monday.
