The Ohio State board of trustees moved into executive session a little after 9 a.m. Wednesday to discuss the findings of the investigation into how football head coach Urban Meyer handled knowledge of domestic abuse allegations against a now-former assistant coach.

The 20 trustees, including former Ohio State basketball star Clark Kellogg, are meeting at the Longaberger Alumni House, which is located east of the Schottenstein Center on the opposite side of Olentangy River Road.

Developments have transpired since this morning, so BSB has chronicled the events that have taken place throughout the day.

Meyer was spotted entering the Longaberger Alumni House shortly after the executive session began. He parked near the loading dock of the building and entered there.

A truck later pulled up to the loading dock, and a man delivering a metal container said a podium was inside of it, leading many to believe that a press conference would be held sometime Wednesday.

Then, around 12:30 p.m., Ohio State police came out from the Longaberger Alumni House and told reporters to clear out from the loading dock, possibly indicating that Meyer would soon be leaving.

About an hour later, Ohio State director of media relations Benjamin Johnson told reporters at the loading dock that an update on the trustees, investigators and Meyer could come in “an hour or two.” However, he said, an announcement still might not come Wednesday.

Around 2 p.m., Kellogg left the room and told reporters that “progress was being made.”

About 40 minutes later, Meyer’s wife, Shelley Meyer, arrived at the Longaberger Alumni House.

In hour No. 6 of the executive session, fans began showing up at the Longaberger Alumni House, including Tennessee Jeff, who organized the Aug. 6 rally that was held in front of Ohio Stadium.
