Sources close to investigation shine light on potential punishment for Urban Meyer
Sources close to the Urban Meyer investigation may have revealed the punishment the Ohio State head coach will receive following the findings of the independent work group.
Monday, the Columbus Dispatch reported that “two sources connected to the investigation said the likely recommendation is a suspension for Meyer.” He could also receive a “time served” punishment, according to the Dispatch.
Earlier Monday, Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports reported that the Ohio State Board of Trustees would meet at 9 a.m. on Wednesday morning to discuss the situation involving Meyer. A decision on Meyer’s status is expected to be announced Wednesday or Thursday, though there has been no deadline provided.
Meyer has been on paid administrative leave since Ohio State announced an independent group would lead an investigation into the head coach’s alleged knowledge of the domestic violence accusations levied against former assistant coach Zach Smith.
Ohio State’s first game will be on Sept. 1 against Oregon State in Columbus.
