The public session to begin the Ohio State Board of Trustees' meeting to discuss Urban Meyer's future lasted less than two minutes on Wednesday morning.

Almost immediately after convening at the Longaberger Alumni House on Wednesday at 9 a.m., Board of Trustees chairman Michael Gasser moved for the board to move into an executive session – closed to the media and public – where the board, along with university president Michael Drake, are currently discussing "personnel matters regarding the employment, compensation and discipline of public officials."

Gasser did not specify which public officials, presumably including Meyer but also potentially including other members of the Ohio State athletic department, were being discussed. Meyer was spotted walking into the building where the meeting is taking place, however, by WSYX's Rodney Dunigan.

Stay tuned with Eleven Warriors as we await further developments following Wednesday morning's executive session.
