  • Ohio State coach Urban Meyer walks on the field before the team's NCAA college football game against Iowa in Iowa City Iowa. Ohio State trustees are set to discuss the future of football coach Urban Meyer. Th

Ohio State president Michael V. Drake deliberated with the school's Board of Trustees in an executive session on Wednesday and concluded that Meyer would be suspended but would keep his job. The lead investigator was Mary Jo White, who is known in sporting circles for her work in the National Football League on cases involving Ezekiel Elliott and the New Orleans Saints' "Bounty Gate" case.

Ohio State University announced Wednesday night that head football coach Urban Meyer would be suspended for the first three games of the upcoming season following an investigation into his handling of domestic abuse allegations against a former assistant coach.

The Ohio State University athletic director has arrived at the campus building where trustees are meeting to determine the fate of football coach Urban Meyer. Their handling of this matter did not exhibit the kind of leadership and high standards that we expect of our Athletic Director, Head Coach, Assistant Coaches and all on the football staff. He'll return to the sidelines on September 22 against Tulane.

Following the reports, Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith and Urban Meyer agreed have Meyer placed on paid administrative leave until the university has had a chance to complete a full-scale investigation into Meyer's involvement in this case.

Meyer's suspension started on August 1, the same day that college football reporter Brett McMurphy released a report on Facebook that detailed domestic allegations against former wide receiver coach Zach Smith.

After firing Smith, Meyer told reporters that he knew about a 2009 incident in Gainsville, Florida involving Smith, but Meyer said he did not know about a 2015 incident that happened while Smith was on the Ohio State payroll.

Smith is the grandson of former Ohio State coach Earl Bruce, a mentor to Meyers, and played college football at Bowling Green under Meyers.

Then, McMurphy published a story detailing a 2015 investigation in suburban Columbus after Courtney Smith called police and alleged years of abuse by her then husband.

The announcement came after a two-week investigation into Meyer's handling of the abuse allegations led by Mary Jo White, a former U.S. attorney and former chair of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Meyer later reversed course and said he was informed about the 2015 incident at the time and relayed it through "proper channels". Meyer had denied knowing about the allegations the previous week at Big Ten media days. He later apologized for not being accurate in his media day statements, saying he'd "failed", and declared that he'd always followed proper protocols.
