According to an ESPN report, the 11 year Head coach of the Buckeyes has been asked to tender his resignation.

Ohio State is feeling the full weight of the massive investigation ongoing with the NCAA, and seemingly each week a new problem arises from these investigations.

According to the report, OSU president E. Gordon Gee constructed a panel to look into all aspects of the investigation, he describes as "a nightmare", and he consulted with senior members of the Ohio State board members, before coming to this conclusion.

"My public statement will include our common understanding that throughout all we do, we are One University with one set of standards and one overarching mission," Gee wrote in the letter, according to the Columbus newspaper. "The University's enduring public purposes and its tradition of excellence continue to guide our actions."
