OSU releases details of Meyer's contract

Jun 19, 2012

Ohio State University is paying football coach Urban Meyer 4 million dollars per year, and his contract includes specific requirements for reporting violations of NCAA rules. The university has completed a seven-year contract with Meyer the board of trustees is expected to approve later this week. Details of the deal were released on Monday. Meyer's contract guarantees him a chance to make significantly more money through bonuses and youth camps. Meyer was hired last November to rebuild the program, which got a one-year bowl ban for NCAA rules violations under former coach Jim Tressel.
