It is amazing how quickly things can change! Even in a matter of three days and even hours.

Just recently on Monday, Bob Evans announced that Meyer would be the face of their new fall breakfast menu, calling him their ‘Head Breakfast Coach’.

Now, Bob Evans has had a change of heart due to the current status of Coach Meyer.

The 54-year-old Meyer, who was about to start his seventh season heading the Ohio State program with an impressive record of 73-8, was placed on paid adminstrative leave on Wednesday by the university following allegations that he knew about the domestic violence claims of Courtney Smith, ex-wife of former wide receivers and recruiting coordinator Zach Smith from 2015. Mrs. Smith recently has spoken out that Coach Meyer knew.

In a statement released Thursday afternoon, Bob Evans Restaurants said they are halting the campaign while Ohio State conducts its investigation into the allegations surrounding the popular Buckeyes coach.

“At Bob Evans Restaurants, we believe strongly in the family first values upon which the company was founded. We are suspending the current partnership with Urban Meyer and removing all related content pending the results of the official Ohio State University investigation.”

Ohio State announced Wednesday evening that head football coach Urban Meyer had been placed on paid administrative leave while the university investigated allegations that he knew a former wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Zach Smith had been accused of domestic abuse in 2015.

In a statement released by the university, Meyer said he and Athletic Director Gene Smith had agreed “that being on leave during this inquiry will facilitate its completion. This allows the team to conduct training camp with minimal distraction. I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter.”

 

Meyer said last week at the Big Ten Conference Media Days that he had not heard of the domestic abuse accusations until recent days, but a report on Wednesday suggested that Meyer had known about the accusations for far longer. The allegations have been made by Courtney Smith, ex-wife of Smith. She claims that the Buckeyes coach had to have known because she disclosed everything to Shelley Meyer, Urban’s wife.

Ohio State and Coach Meyer fired Zach Smith last week after reports started to surface that Mrs. Smith had filed a domestic violence protection order against him the previous Friday and he had recently been charged with misdemeanor trespassing.

Despite Ohio State having two former head coaches on their staff, Greg Schiano and Kevin Wilson, with previous experience as head coaches at major college programs at Rutgers and Indiana, respectively, got bypassed in favor of a rising star in the profession to run the team during the investigation. Ryan Day, a 39-year-old co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach who joined the program a year ago, Smith said in the university statement.

As a senior he helped the Buckeyes win the Big Ten title and the 1950 Rose Bowl

 

COLUMBUS, Ohio Pandel Savic, who quarterbacked Ohio State to its first Rose Bowl victory in 1950, passed away Tuesday in Columbus at the age of 92. Officials at Muirfield Village Golf Club, where Savic was the Memorial Tournament’s general chairman emeritus, announced the news of Savic’s passing.

 

Savic came to Ohio State in the mid-1940s from Girard, Ohio, and Girard High School; this after immigrating to the United States from his home country of Macedonia at age nine. He was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran upon enrolling at Ohio State in 1946, having previously enlisted and fought in World War II.

 

A three-year letterman (1947-48-49), Savic was Ohio State’s passing leader in both 1948 and 1949. He had a fine senior season for the Buckeyes, who won the Big Ten championship for coach Wes Fesler with a 5-1-1 conference mark and then completed the 7-1-2 campaign with a 17-14 Rose Bowl win over California.

 

Savic, who was inducted into the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2009, is one of the founding members of Muirfield Village Golf Club and served as general chairman of the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide for more than 30 years.

 

Memorial services are pending.

1957 Captain & National Champion Leo Brown Passes

Program’s first African-American captain became an oral surgeon and an Air Force colonel

 

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Leo Brown, a standout performer on Woody Hayes’ Ohio State teams in the mid-1950s and the first African-American captain in program history, died this weekend at his home, in Lakewood, Colo. A nephew, Henry Brown, contacted the Ohio State Department of Athletics with the news of Brown’s passing. He was 84.

 

Born in 1934 and a native of Portsmouth, Ohio, Brown was a three-year Varsity O letterman for Ohio State from 1955-57. He played on the 1955 Big Ten championship team, the 1956 team that set a Big Ten Conference record by reaching 17 consecutive conference victories, and the 1957 team that won the UPI national championship, the third national title for Ohio State football and the second under Hayes.

 

An end who played both ways on the field, Brown earned first-team all-Big Ten honors as a junior in 1956 before being selected as a team captain as a senior in 1957, along with Galen Cisco.

 

Following his Ohio State career, which included his becoming a proud member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., Brown enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, where he worked as a maxillofacial surgeon for over 20 years before retiring as a colonel.

 

Services for Brown will be Monday, March 26, at St. Paul’s Community Church in Lakewood, Colo., with a military burial service to follow at Ft. Logan Veteran’s Cemetery in Denver.
