Well what do you know, Meyer put Bruce's grandson on the Ohio St staff after the two talked. Now they need to dig deeper, did that personal relationship help Smith maintain his job after multiple claims of spousal abuse. Also was Smith conveniently easier to fire because of Bruce's death just a couple months ago.
Meyer had a relationship with Smith before he was at OSU. Smith was a graduate assistant for Meyer at Florida from 2005-2009. In fact, thatís where the first documented incident involving Smith and his wife occurred.
