Report: Urban Meyer likely to be suspended by Ohio State
While no final decisions have been made on the fate of Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, early hints are he appears well-positioned to at least keep his job.
Citing two sources close to the investigation, Lucas Sullivan of the Columbus Dispatch reported Monday that the recommendation from Ohio State’s investigators will likely be some sort of suspension of unknown length. Meyer may also get some sort of “time served” punishment, as he has been on administrative leave since Aug. 1 while the investigation was ongoing.
The investigation has been completed, with a formal meeting of the board of trustees set for Wednesday morning to discuss Meyer’s future in depth.
Meyer has defended his conduct in his handling of former assistant Zach Smith’s inappropriate and abusive behavior. It appears likely that the Ohio State board will find some wrongdoing, but not enough to fire him or demand his resignation.
