(Columbus, OH) -- Ohio State is hiring an outside law firm to investigate whether head football coach Urban Meyer knew about a domestic violence claim against a former assistant.
The University says the inquiry is expected to be completed within two weeks.
Meyer was put on paid leave last week after the ex-wife of former wide receivers coach Zach Smith said she told Meyer's wife in 2015 that her then-husband was abusing her.
In 2009, Smith was accused of aggravated battery on his then-pregnant wife while he was working for Meyer at the University of Florida.
