Ryan Day receives contract extension until 2028 with salary increase to $ 9.5 million per year

Ryan Day has a new contract.

Under the terms of a new contract approved by the Ohio State Board of Talent, Compensation and Governance Committee on Wednesday, Day will receive $ 9.5 million in annual compensation with a two-year contract extension until the 2028 season.

The new contract, which is subject to full board approval Thursday, connects Day with Michigan’s Mel Tucker, who received a $ 95 million 10-year contract in November for the Big Ten highest paid coach. Nationwide, he combines Day with Tucker and LSU’s Brian Kelly for the third highest paid coaches behind USC’s Lincoln Riley ($ 10 million) and Alabama Nick Saban ($ 9.9 million).

Day’s new contract increases his compensation for the 2022 season by $ 1.9 million, as he was to earn $ 7.6 million this year under the terms of his previous contract.

With Day’s new contract, the State of Ohio will now pay a total of $ 18.283 million to Day and his 10 assistant coaches this year – an increase of more than $ 4 million from 2021.
