After a lengthy deliberation Wednesday at the Longaberger Alumni House, Ohio State suspended Urban Meyer for the first three games of the 2018 season without pay.
However, during practice weeks leading up to the Buckeyes' Week 2 and 3 games against Rutgers and TCU, Meyer will have access to his players.
Let me clarify again. He is fully suspended through the Oregon State game. Then for the Rutgers and TCU games, he can direct practice during the week but not coach on Saturday.— Bill Rabinowitz (@brdispatch) August 23, 2018
The university's Board of Trustees made the decision to suspend Meyer without pay for the first three games after discussing their options over a 12-hour period.
During the Week 3 contest against TCU in Arlington, Texas, Meyer will not be allowed to travel with the team, either.
