Urban Meyer’s Wife
Texts to Courtney Smith Released
‘Zach Smith Scares Me’
8/28/2018 1:40 PM PDT
Urban Meyer‘s wife, Shelley, texted Courtney Smith — expressing serious concerns about her husband, Zach Smith … saying point blank, “He scares me.”
The text exchange between Shelley and Courtney are included in the Ohio State investigation report into the football coach’s mishandling of Zach, who was a WR coach for the Buckeyes.
The exact date of the text message exchange that was handed over to investigators is unclear — but it was AFTER she filed for divorce from Zach and BEFORE it was finalized.
Zach was clearly still a member of the OSU coaching staff at the time.
Shelley initiated the conversation saying, “Hi courtney – I think about you very often- how are you and the kids? I am so sick that you have to suffer with this crap- so young. I am so so sorry.”
Remember, Courtney has said she told Shelley Meyer about the alleged physical abuse she had suffered at the hands of Zach over the years … and was upset neither Urban nor OSU took any action against him.
Courtney texted back to Shelley that she was “hanging in there” and added, “It’s not your fault. I should have left a long time ago. Leaving was the best thing for me and the kids ya know? Just want the divorce final so I’m not walking on egg shells anymore.”
Shelley replied, “I am with you! A lot of women stay hoping it will get better. I don’t blame you! But just want U to be safe. Do you have restraining order? He scares me.”
The text message exchange was first reported by Brett McMurphy, who broke open the entire Zach Smith scandal.
