ESPN reports that Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has been suspended the first three games of the season.

From their article:

Ohio State has suspended coach Urban Meyer through Sept. 2 without pay. Meyer can rejoin the program after Sept. 2, but will not be allowed to coach in the team’s first three games.

Additionally, OSU athletic director Gene Smith has also been suspended without pay from Aug. 31 until Sept. 16.

The moves come after a two-week investigation into allegations that Meyer and others mishandled domestic assault accusations made against former assistant coach Zach Smith.

Meyer will miss the fifth-ranked Buckeyes’ games against Oregon State, Rutgers and No. 16 TCU.

This is a breaking story, and further information will be added as it comes available...
