A new report from college football insider Brett McMurphy alleged that former Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith had sex with a staffer, sent nude photos from inside the White House and had thousands of dollars worth of adult toys sent to the Buckeyes' facility.

The full details of the report can be seen here.

Included in McMurphy's report was a text exchange he had with Smith's attorney, Brad Koffel.

Here was part of the exchange published by Stadium:

Koffel: Sounds like extortion. Thanks for the texts Brett. I’d get a lawyer if I were you.
McMurphy: Not extortion. I’m not asking for money nor have I received any money. I’m asking for your comment to my original question: what was the purpose of taking these photos and why were the items delivered to the Woody Hayes Center? And did Urban Meyer have knowledge of any of this?
McMurphy: As a courtesy, as you said you would extend, here are my questions: what was the purpose of taking these photos and why were the items delivered to the Woody Hayes Center? And did Urban Meyer have knowledge of any of this? Thx u
Koffel: You know these were accessed illegally. Another felony
McMurphy: I don’t know how they were accessed. Can you answer my questions please

Koffel later took to Twitter to reveal one of his recent texts to McMurphy:

Smith was fired by Ohio State in July.

Urban Meyer was placed on paid administrative leave at the beginning of August pending an investigation into how he handled the domestic violence accusations against Smith. That investigation is set to conclude today.

Stay tuned.
