Zach Smith met with investigators.

Zach Smith met with the group investigating Urban Meyer on Tuesday for "several hours," according a statement from his attorney, Brad Koffel.

According to the statement, Smith "did not refuse to answer a single question," and the lawyers conducting the interview were "thoroughly prepared and very exhaustive in their questioning."

During the investigation, Smith "reiterated everything he said in his ESPN interview," according to the statement.

On Sunday Aug. 5, Ohio State announced a 14-day timetable for the completion of the investigation of Meyer, which is led by what it calls a "special, independent board working group."

With that timetable, the investigation is expected to be concluded on or by the weekend.

Smith was fired from Ohio State on July 23 following the reporting of domestic violence allegations in 2009 and 2015, as well as a criminal trespass charge in 2018.

Meyer was placed on paid administrative leave on Wednesday, Aug. 1 while the university investigated his knowledge and subsequent action regarding the domestic violence allegations.
