Ohio State Head Coach Ryan Day To Receive Contract Extension Through 2028
Ohio State head coach Ryan Day is set to receive a two-year contract extension that will tie him to the university through 2028.
The contract extension was approved by Board of Trustees’ Talent, Compensation and Governance Committee on Wednesday and is expected to be approved by the board on Thursday.
In addition to the two-year extension, Day will receive an annual compensation of $9.5 million per year – a boost from his previous number of $7.5 million per year – that would put him in line with Michigan State’s Mel Tucker ($9.5 million) within the conference and LSU’s Brian Kelly ($9.5 million), Alabama’s Nick Sabin ($9.9 million) and USC’s Lincoln Riley ($10 million) nationally.
Day has led Ohio State to a 34-4 record in his three seasons as head coach (and three games in 2018), winning two Big Ten Championships and making two appearances in the College Football Playoff.
