Urban Meyer is not allowed to communicate with other Ohio State football coaches or players and cannot be on university property during his paid administrative leave, according to a report by Cleveland.com's Bill Landis.

Meyer's university-issued communication devices have also been taken from him, and he will not have access to his OSU email account until the investigation is complete.

Per Landis' report:

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer is not permitted any contact with players or coaches while he's on paid administrative leave pending a university investigation. Additionally, Meyer does not have access to any university-issued communication devices or his school email account.

Meyer is also not permitted on university property, which includes the Woody Hayes Athletic Center and the football offices.

Christopher Davey, Ohio State's associate vice president for university communications, confirmed the parameters of Meyer's leave to cleveland.com on Thursday.

Meyer has been on paid administrative leave from the university since last Wednesday, when the university launched an investigation into what he knew about and how he handled domestic violence allegations against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith in 2015. Ohio State announced Sunday that it expects the investigation to be completed within two weeks.
