Ohio State Suspends Urban Meyer For 3 Games Following Domestic Violence Scandal

A board of trustees met Wednesday to discuss the future of Ubran Meyer at Ohio State University following accusations of turning a blind eye to assistant coach Zach Smith abusing his former wife.

Those accusations have resulted in a three game suspension of Meyer, retaining his job as head coach of the Buckeyes despite retaining Smith with knowledge of the domestic violence as well as making “misstatements” regarding the situation following such.

Meyer will miss his team’s games against Oregon State, Rutgers and at No. 16 TCU.

The school also announced that athletic director Gene Smith is also being suspended, decided at two weeks from Aug. 31 to Sept. 16.
