Ohio State football suspends coach Urban Meyer for three games

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has been suspended for three games of the upcoming 2018 college football season over his handling of allegations of domestic violence against his assistant and a family friend, the school said on Wednesday (August 22).

According to local TV station WBNS, independent investigators released findings on Wednesday evening that both Meyer and Athletic Director Gene Smith were aware of an investigation into assistant coach Zack Smith for domestic violence and failed to report the investigation, which Meyer is contractually obligated to report.

In addition, athletic director Gene Smith told a press conference that he was suspended until September 16.

"I followed my heart and not my head, I fell short of pursuing full information, because at each juncture, I gave Zach Smith the benefit of the doubt," said Meyer.
