  • Eddie George On Ohio State Scandal, If Guilty, Punish Severely

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer was placed on paid administrative leave and is being investigated by an independent group to determine whether or not he knew about the allegations of abuse against Smith in 2015.

Last month, Zach Smith was sacked from Ohio State after accusations of domestic violence made by his ex-wife were made public.

Ohio State placed Meyer on paid administrative leave August 1 after Courtney Smith accused him of mishandling past domestic assault allegations she made against Zach Smith.

The independent investigation will wrap up its findings on Sunday, and then prepare a report to be delivered to the Board of Trustees sometime next week, Ohio State said in its statement Friday.

Meyer has since acknowledged he was aware of the 2015 allegations, and claims to have followed proper protocol, without offering details. A decision on Meyer's future at Ohio State by university President Michael Drake is expected shortly thereafter.

"There is a great deal of interest in this investigation", Drake said in an interview.

"What we're doing now is an investigation to try to find out exactly what happened, why, what the context was, etc.", Drake said.

The decision will likely come down to either Meyer being fired or Meyer being suspended for X number of games to start the 2018 season, but staying on as the head coach. I've been doing my best possible job to keep an open mind. It looked like he was gone early, it doesn't look like he is now - and I say that just based on having watched college football and understanding the cynical nature of it. A couple of days later, McMurphy produced text messages from Courtney Smith that showed Meyer's wife knew about the allegations in 2015.

"As required by law, public notice of the meeting will be released at least 24 hours in advance", the school said. Former Ohio House Speaker Jo Ann Davidson serves as chair of the working group. The investigation is being led by former chair of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Mary Jo White, a former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY.
