The attorney for Courtney Smith, the ex-wife of former Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith, said in a statement that her client will cooperate with the university's investigation into how Urban Meyer handled domestic abuse allegations against Zach Smith in 2015.

Julia Leveridge, the attorney for Courtney Smith, released this statement to Brett McMurphy and other reporters:

"Courtney Smith is currently involved in two legal matters, criminal trespass involving her ex-husband Zach Smith, and a domestic violence civil protection order she has obtained to ensure her ongoing safety. Ms. Smith will have no further comments until these matters have been resolved. Her focus remains on caring for her two small children and continuing her nursing studies.

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. We believe the University must prioritize the safety and well-being of others above all else. While The Ohio State University has never contacted Ms. Smith to discuss these allegations, she will fully cooperate with the university's current investigation.

We would like to set the record straight in terms of the misinformation that has been circulating.
