Urban Meyer is reportedly pushing back against a potential suspension for his handling of former assistant coach Zach Smith.

Meyer was placed on administrative leave by Ohio State University on Aug. 1 as the school opened an investigation into Meyer’s knowledge of domestic violence allegations involving Smith. The investigation, which has been completed, is expected to lead to Meyer being suspended. According to Pregame.com founder RJ Bell, Meyer is pushing back against a suspension, even if it is a short one.

In an open letter, Meyer defended his conduct regarding his handling of Smith, though he did admit to essentially lying to the media about his knowledge of the allegations.

Meyer’s punishment will likely be announced soon. The school’s board of trustees is set to meet on Wednesday morning and will be presented with the findings of the investigation at that time. The Buckeyes open up the season on Sept. 1 against Oregon State.
