OSU Board of Trustees Meeting Wednesday to Discuss Meyer

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--The Ohio State University Board of Trustees will meet Wednesday morning to discuss the investigation into Head Football Coach Urban Meyer.

The board will immediately go into executive session to discuss the investigation, conducted by an independent panel, and make recommendations on possible discipline against the coach.

The final decision will be up to University president, Dr. Michael Drake.

The investigation took two weeks, and wrapped up on Sunday.

Meyer has been on paid administrative leave since August 1st, when a report from Brett McMurphy alleged that he had knowledge of a domestic violence incident from 2015, that involved former Wide receivers Coach Zach Smith, and his ex-wife Courtney. That report cited text messages between Courtney and Meyer's wife, Shelley.

Zach Smith was fired in July after Courtney filed a restraining order against him. McMurphy released another report last week, alleging that Smith had sex toys delivered to his office at Ohio State, had sex with a subordinate at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, and took a picture of his genitalia while visiting the White House with the football team in 2015, after winning the national championship.

At Big Ten Media Days in July, Meyer indicated that the incident involving Zach in 2015 was "nothing".
