The Ohio State Buckeyes have given coach Urban Meyer a three-game suspension without pay for his handling of allegations against former assistant coach Zach Smith.

Meyer will miss the first three games of Ohio State’s season, while athletic director Gene Smith will be suspended without pay from his role from Aug. 31 through Sept. 16.

The report from Ohio State investigators found that Meyer and Gene Smith had both mistakenly believed they were following proper protocol in their handling of Zach Smith, but ultimately failed to. The investigation also found that neither Meyer nor Gene Smith deliberately covered up any allegations, nor did they violate legal or contractual obligations, which is likely why both are keeping their jobs.
