Urban Meyer is the man at the center of Ohio State's investigation into how domestic violence allegations against now-fired assistant coach Zach Smith were handled, but the Buckeyes' head coach's wife, Shelley Meyer, is a part of it, too.

According to Brett McMurphy's bombshell report published last week, Shelley Meyer had texted with Courtney Smith, the ex-wife of Zach Smith, about their relationship.

McMurphy published an update on Shelley Meyer today. He reports that Ohio State has been unresponsive to multiple public records requests about her status at the university.

From his report:

Meanwhile, Ohio State University, since last Friday, has refused to respond to multiple public record requests inquiring about the employment status of Shelley Meyer, who is a part-time instructor of clinical practice at the university’s College of Nursing.

At 12:58 p.m. Monday, Benjamin Johnson and Christopher Davey, of Ohio State’s public information office, assured the information would be provided “very soon.”

As of the publishing of this story Tuesday afternoon, Ohio State has still not fulfilled this public information request concerning Shelley Meyer, a state employee.

There are questions about possible Title IX violations at Ohio State regarding how the domestic violence accusations against Zach Smith.

Ohio State's investigation is underway and the Buckeyes said on Sunday night that it is expected to take two weeks.

OSU is a couple of weeks away from opening its season. The Buckeyes are currently being led by interim coach Ryan Day in the absence of Meyer, who said in a statement on Friday that he's eagerly looking forward to returning to the team.
