Ohio State is in the process of investigating Urban Meyer and how he handled domestic abuse allegations against former assistant coach Zach Smith. Meyer is currently on administrative leave.

Meyer's fate is unknown as of now. There have been rumors he could be suspended, while others suggest he might be fired.

Whatever the decision is, it should come relatively soon. Ohio State announced an update tonight, including a timeline for the probe.

The investigation is expected to be completed within the next two weeks. Former Ohio House Speaker Jo Ann Davidson will be leading it.

The full info can be found below.

Meyer originally said he did not know of any alleged domestic violence incident involving Smith that occurred in 2015.

However, following a report from Brett McMurphy, he admitted he was aware of the allegations but followed necessary protocol.

Meyer has been the head coach at Ohio State since 2012. He won the national championship in 2014.
