Ohio State probably wasn’t the most talented team in the land last year, but the wound up National Champs and that’s all that matters. And for his troubles, head coach Urban Meyer is being rewarded handsomely.
OSU has locked up Meyer through the 2020 season and is paying him an average of $6.5 million per season which makes him the highest paid SEC coach.
Ohio State has extended Urban Meyer’s contract through the 2020 season and will make him the highest-paid coach in the Big Ten. Under his old deal he would’ve been paid $4.9 million for 2015. Now, Meyer — who led the Buckeyes to the national title three months ago — will make $5.8 million in total compensation and he will average $6.5 million over the next six seasons.
