Urban Meyer Investigation To Conclude By Sunday
The ongoing investigation of Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer will be concluded by Sunday as planned, according to university officials.
The independent investigation group will deliver their report and will be shared with the board of trustees in an executive session next week.
University president Michael Drake, along with the board of trustees, will determine what action is needed after hearing the results of the investigation.
Meyer, on paid administrative leave since August 1st, was placed there after former assistant coach Zach Smith's ex-wife accused Urban of mishandling past domestic assault allegations made against Smith. Four days after Meyer was placed on leave, Ohio State created the special working group to review the allegations. They said it would take two weeks from Aug. 5th.
"There is a great deal of interest in this investigation," he said. "We wanted to make sure we had really good information, and there is time pressure. We wanted to have that information as quickly as possible. ...The most important thing is to get good information so we can make the right decisions going forward."
University president Drake will announce his decision after deliberations with the board.
