COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Ohio State assistant Ryan Day earned an extra $487,000 for steering the Buckeyes during Urban Meyer's suspension.
That's the amount of the lump-sum bonus the university will give Day for acting as head coach from Aug. 1 through last Sunday. Meyer served a three-game suspension for mismanagement of former assistant Zach Smith.
Day was informed of the bonus in a letter dated Monday from athletic director Gene Smith. It will be paid Sept. 30.
