Urban Meyer Salary: Ohio State Coach Gets New Contract


Urban Meyer has pledged to remain with the Ohio State football program for the foreseeable future. On Thursday, the Buckeyes coach agreed to a new deal that will extend him through 2022. With the extension comes a pay raise, which leaves Meyer earning $1.2 million extension.

From CBS Sports:

“I want to thank President Michael V. Drake for his guidance and the Board of Trustees for its work in considering this extension,” athletic director Gene Smith said in a release. “I think everyone will agree that we have one of the finest coaches and mentors in Urban Meyer leading our football program.”

When approved, Meyer will receive a $1.2 million raise. His average salary for the 2018 season will be $7.6 million, which will make him the third-highest paid coach in the country behind Alabama’s Nick Saban and Clemson’s Dabo Swinney.

Now, Swinney has the fourth highest annual salary behind Nick Saban, who earned a whopping $11 million last season, and Dabo Swinney who earned over $8.5 million during the Tigers’ 2017 campaign.

Last season, Meyer earned around $6 million, so his annual salary moving forward will be in the $7.2 million range.

That’s not too bad for a man who will be coaching kids who aren’t, but deserve to be, paid.
