Ohio State fans are reportedly planning a rally in support of head football coach Urban Meyer. According to ABC 6, Jeff Hamms, also known as “Tennessee Jeff”, is organizing the rally and has invited any Ohio State fan willing to make the trip to Columbus.

The reported rally comes in response to Ohio State placing Meyer on paid administrative leave following a bombshell report from Brett McMurphy. The report alleges Meyer knew of the assault allegations against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith.

According to the ABC 6 report, Hamms posted a video "telling his thousands of Buckeye fans that he wants to hold a rally on campus to support the coach."

Hamms took to Facebook once again on Saturday afternoon to announce specifics for the rally.

Details of the rally are still to come, but it looks as though it will happen on Ohio State's campus.

Meanwhile, Ohio State's players resumed practice activities earlier this week. Ryan Day was named as the team's interim head coach as the investigation continues.
