Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer will be suspended without for the first three games of the 2018 season.

The decision came after an 11-hour board of trustees meeting on Wednesday. OSU Athletic Director Gene Smith is also suspended for the same amount of time.

Wednesday's meeting was the conclusion of a school investigation into Meyer's knowledge of domestic violence allegations against former assistant coach Zach Smith.
