The investigation of Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer's handling of a domestic violence complaint against a former assistant is expected to be completed within 14 days, the school announced in a statement Sunday night.

Per the school's release, the special, independent working group formed to direct the investigation met late in the week, appointed a chair and engaged an investigative firm. Former Ohio House Speaker Jo Ann Davidson was picked to serve as chair of the group, which is composed of three current members of the board of trustees, Alex Fischer, Janet Porter and Alex Shumate, and two others not associated with the university, former acting U.S. Deputy Attorney General Craig Morford and former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio Carter Stewart.

Former chair of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Mary Jo White will lead the investigative team. White is a senior chair with the national law firm Debevoise & Plimpton and is a former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. White has worked on several cases for the NFL, most recently leading the investigation into accusations of workplace misconduct by Panthers owner Jerry Richardson.

"Ohio State is committed to a thorough and complete investigation," Davidson said in the statement. "We look forward to sharing the results of this investigation and any action the university may take."

According to the release, the group will be available to provide consultation and advice and will assist with communication to the full board on matters concerning the investigation. Decisions about actions, based on the findings of the investigation, will be made by Ohio State president Michael V. Drake in consultation with the board of trustees.
