An Ohio State insider for the Columbus Dispatch had an update on the school's investigation into Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes' football program. It's certainly an interesting one.

Bill Rabinowitz, an Ohio State reporter for Columbus' newspaper, is reporting that the investigation team is set to meet with fired assistant coach Zach Smith at some point in the coming week.

The fact of the meeting is interesting, of course, but more interesting is what Smith is reportedly going to ask for - his job back.

From the report:

Zach Smith is expected to meet with the Ohio State committee investigating Urban Meyer early next week, the former OSU receivers coach said Saturday.

Smith said his meeting will probably take place Monday or Tuesday. He declined further comment.

Smith’s attorney, Bradley Koffel, told The Dispatch that Smith will answer all questions he is asked. He also indicated that Smith will request to get his job back.

Smith was fired by Ohio State in July.

Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes' program has been under investigation for a little more than a week. Ohio State's investigative team is attempting to figure out how Meyer and the program handled domestic violence allegations against Smith.

Ohio State announced last Sunday night that its Urban Meyer investigation is set to be completed within two weeks.
