Ryan Day Receives Contract Extension Through 2028 with Salary Increase to $ 9.5 Million Per Year

Ryan Day

Ryan Day has a new contract.

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

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

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

With Day’s new contract, Ohio State will now be paying a total of $ 18,283 million to Day and his 10 assistant coaches this year – an increase of more than $ 4 million from 2021.
