Caesar’s Wife

One of the common law duties of all employees is to report material departures from the company’s Code of Conduct.  Interesting when that’s applied to a super star.  Over something that happened nine years ago, at a different school.

“Ohio State Puts Meyer On Leave Amid Probe,” The Wall Street Journal, August 2, 2018 A6.  Coach put on admin leave pending investigation into whether he knew that one of his assistant coaches beat up his spouse in 2009, when the coaches were both at Florida.

It was not alleged that Coach Meyer knew of the abuse, but that his wife did.  But Coach Meyer said he’d learned of the abuse before his wife did, and he and his wife counseled the offender and his wife at the time.

How could Coach Meyer have purged himself of this taint?
