Ohio State boosting Ryan Day’s salary to $9.5M

Ohio State football coach Ryan Day is set to receive to a two-year contract extension that boosts his annual salary to $9.5 million through the 2028 season.

The deal announced by the school Wednesday increases Day’s annual compensation from $7.6 million. It is pending the approval of the university’s board of trustees in a vote to be held Thursday.

Day, 43, has led the Buckeyes to a 34-4 record (23-1 Big Ten) since being named the program’s 25th head coach on Dec. 4, 2018.

Day’s teams have made two appearances in the College Football Playoff and won two Big Ten championships.

Ohio State announced updates for four other head coaches. Men’s basketball coach Chris Holtmann and men’s ice hockey coach Steve Rohlik will receive extensions and women’s basketball coach Kevin McGuff and men’s lacrosse coach Nick Myers will receive new contracts.

Holtmann’s three-year extension includes a $500,000 raise to $3.5 million per year in salary. His Buckeyes are one of three teams to win at least 20 games in each of his first five seasons, along with Kansas and Oregon.

McGuff’s new four-year deal includes an annual compensation of $1.05 million and runs through the 2025-26 season. Ohio State finished 25-7 in his ninth season at the helm of the program in 2021-22.

Rohlik’s two-year extension runs through the 2025-26 campaign. The two-time Big Ten Coach of the Year (2018, 2019) just completed his ninth season as head coach of the Buckeyes.

Myers’ new five-year contract runs through the 2027 season. He is the program’s all-time winningest coach and has led Ohio State to four NCAA Tournament berths in 14 seasons.
