Urban Meyer has been on paid administrative leave since last Wednesday, as Ohio State investigates how he and the Buckeyes' program handled domestic violence accusations against now-fired assistant coach Zach Smith.

Ohio State announced on Sunday night that the investigation is expected to be completed in two weeks. The Buckeyes open the season on Sept. 1.

It remains unclear how exactly Ohio State handled the accusations. Urban Meyer said in a statement that he reported the accusations, following protocol, but admitted he mishandled his press conference at Big Ten Media Days.

Several in the media are now starting to believe that Meyer will not be fired.

Meyer's daughters, Nicki and GiGi, have been showing their father support on Twitter.

They've retweeted tweets like:

Urban Meyer had said at the end of his statement released on Friday that he looks forward to rejoining his team. The Buckeyes started practice last week.

Stay tuned.
