This is basically just so OSU can get their ducks in a row before canning him right?

Why is he getting fired for this? I mean it's definitely not good if he knew, but I don't think it's worth firing him over.

If he knew of someone's domestic abuse/violence and stayed quiet about it for years, that's no good and of course he'll be fired in todays day and age.
 
Only way I could see him wiggling out of it is if his wife says, yes I knew about it but didn't tell him. Which probably wouldn't be true.

He should be fired. Sounds like its still on the table.
 
He didn't even apologize or anything. He just said he wishes he wasn't in this situation.
 
I don't believe he's a bad guy, but he messed up and handled the situation wrong.

He has a long history of looking the other way on all varieties of off-field mishaps.

I think that can be said for like 80% of all NCAA head coaches of top schools. Football and basketball certainly.

3 games is kind of uninsulting, they may as well have not given out any suspension.

Sounds like the board is reviewing it and will most likely fire him. They don't want that backlash of not firing him.
