Urban Meyer remains on paid administrative leave - for now. Ohio State's president and board of trustees are currently meeting to decide Meyer's future with the Ohio State football program.

A decision seems likely to come today. The school's board of trustees meeting began at 9 a.m. E.T.

Urban Meyer showed up to the meeting, which has been going on for five-plus hours at this point. However, an update from ESPN's Dan Murphy suggests Meyer isn't exactly in the meeting itself.

Murphy said Meyer is not in the room with trustees discussing the investigation.

Ohio State released a statement earlier today noting that a decision might not be reached today.

Urban Meyer has been on paid administrative leave since August 1. Several Ohio State insiders suggested Meyer's punishment will either be a short suspension or an immediate reinstatement with a "time served" penalty.

An update from the university is expected in the next hour or two.

Stay tuned.
