Paul Finebaum explains why Urban Meyer is likely safe at Ohio State

McMurphy, who has been at the forefront reporting allegations about Smith that led to the coach's firing and an investigation of Urban Meyer, reported for Stadium that Smith ordered multiple sex toys to Ohio State's athletic offices.

FYI, Zach is the former Ohio State WRs coach who was sacked last month in the wake of reports detailing an alleged history of domestic violence. In short, the investigation will be complete on Sunday, but the school will not announce its decision until a few days later.

"That's the projected goal", Ohio State president Michael Drake told WOSU's All Sides of the 14-day timetable.

Day issued a statement Friday afternoon providing an update about Ohio State's fall practices to date. The investigation will wrap up Sunday, but a decision won't be announced until mid-week.

It's been nearly two weeks since Urban Meyer was placed on paid administrative leave by Ohio State University, but a probe into the embattled football coach's actions is still ongoing. The investigators will then prepare a report for the working group to be delivered next week. Although Meyer initially denied being unaware of the alleged incident - for which Smith was never charged - a report from college football reporter Brett McMurphy later showed text messages that seemed to indicate the Buckeyes head coach knew of the accusations. As required by law, public notice of the meeting will be released at least 24 hours in advance.

Ohio State's Board of Trustees had formed a special, independent working group to direct this investigation.

Former Ohio Speaker of the House Jo Ann Davidson is serving as the chair of the six-person investigative committee.

Ohio State proceeded to put Meyer on paid administrative leave as it opened an independent investigation into the matter.

Additional details will be shared next week.
