Urban Meyer Suspension: Ohio State Coach Reportedly Refusing To Serve One

The Ohio State football program and head coach Urban Meyer could be headed for a messy situation. Meyer is currently on paid administrative leave after a report from Brett McMurphy which suggested he was previously aware of domestic violence allegations against former wide receiver coach Zach Smith. On Wednesday, Ohio State’s board of trustees met to discuss Meyer’s fate and it appears that there is some unwillingness from Meyer to serve any punishment.
According to Bucknuts reporter Dave Biddle, Meyer is refusing to serve a suspension that is suggested by university president Michael Drake.
To make matters more interesting, the Board of Trustees allegedly wants to reinstate Meyer immediately.
Biddle explained the mess on social media.
“CliffsNotes version (from what I’ve been told): Ohio State’s BoT wants to reinstate Urban Meyer immediately. University president Michael Drake is balking at that; wants Meyer to serve a suspension. Meyer refuses to serve suspension since he thinks he did nothing wrong,” he wrote.


The Buckeyes kick off their 2018 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 1 against Oregon State. There is no word on whether Ohio State will have Meyer back on the sidelines or whether he will ultimately cave and begin serving a suspension.
