Urban Meyer is getting a nice extra chunk of change this season from Ohio State.
On Wednesday, USA Today reported that the Buckeye football coach received a raise from the school that was more than $100,000 the amount required in his contract.
Meyer, who’s 61-6 in five seasons with the team including a 2014 national championship, got his pay increased to $428,240 instead of the scheduled $321,180. That’s because Ohio State’s board of trustees approved an 8 percent raise instead of his scheduled 6 percent.
He now makes more than $6.4 million and is the fourth-highest paid coach in college football, which pushes him closer to Clemoson’s Dabo Swinney who’s the third-highest and makes $6.75 million. Nick Saban is first at $7.125 million and Jim Harbaugh is second at $7 million.
