COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Four assistant football coaches at Ohio State will be paid at least $1 million this year, according to salary figures released by the school Monday.
That will mark the first time four assistants on one staff have made seven figures, according to the USA Today database of coach's salaries. The database shows there were 24 assistants making at least $1 million nationwide in 2019, including Ohio State co-defensive coordinator Greg Mattison.
The total salaries of Ohio State assistants on coach Ryan Day's staff will be just under $8 million for 2020, plus bonuses based on team performance. Day just got a three-year extension and raise that will pay him $6 million plus bonuses in 2020.
