Ohio State says factfinders investigating coach Urban Meyer's handling of domestic abuse allegations against a former assistant will deliver a report to university leaders sometime next week.

Smith, the grandson of former Ohio State coach and Meyer mentor Earle Bruce, was dismissed July 23 after Courtney Smith was granted a domestic-protection order.

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

His attorney, Brad Koffel, told ESPN that his client plans to defend himself against allegations made by his ex-wife in court.

Off the field, there have been issues that may cause Urban Meyer to leave the program entirely, but Ohio State still has one of the top teams in college football.

Ohio State president Michael Drake said Thursday on a radio interview that the investigation will "be finished when it's finished". Zach Smith has said both Meyer and Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith were aware of the 2015 allegations and believed his denials. In a statement release August 3, Meyer admitted that he was aware of the 2015 incident and followed the proper reporting protocols. "I'm going to wait until I know those things before I make conclusions". In its statement Friday, the university said public notice of the meeting will be released at least 24 hours in advance and that following deliberations with the board, Drake will announce his decision. Former Ohio House Speaker Jo Ann Davidson serves as chair of the working group.

"I think he's pretty close", Finebaum said.

Despite falling to the Ohio State Buckeyes previous year, Penn State football will be a better team than their divisional rivals in 2018. White is a senior chair with the national law firm Debevoise & Plimpton and is also a former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY. Courtney Smith's accusations prompted a police investigation in suburban Columbus that closed without criminal charges against Zach Smith, who has denied physically abusing his wife.
