Urban Meyer is expected to learn his future as Ohio State's head football coach within the next two weeks. The Buckeyes announced on Sunday night that the investigation into Meyer and the program, surrounding the domestic violence allegations against now-fired assistant coach Zach Smith, should be completed within two weeks.
A lot has been said about Meyer's future at Ohio State today. Several ESPN personalities now believe that Meyer will keep his job.
Paul Finebaum thinks it's "pretty obvious."
"I think it’s pretty obvious from Ohio State realizing that the moment they put him on administrative leave it telegraphed to everyone ‘he’s done,’ to Urban realizing he had to change the narrative by issuing that statement on Friday afternoon coinciding with Zach Smith’s just purely embarrassing interview with ESPN," Finebaum said.
"And then, today, I think the betting line in Vegas is now shifting back toward Urban Meyer surviving somehow, whether it’s a two-game or four-game suspension; whether it’s a fine; whether it’s Urban Meyer sitting down with Rece (Davis) or Tom Rinaldi and crying on camera while Shelley looks at him and talks about how he’s the greatest man she’s ever known. You guys can spend plenty of time today coming up with the narrative, but I think we’ve all seen the movie before."
ESPN's David Pollack also believes Meyer will stay. He thinks a suspension is coming, but no firing.
Stephen A. Smith, meanwhile, said during First Take that he could see Meyer retaining his job. Interestingly enough, that video was retweeted by Meyer's daughter, GiGi.
