After resigning as head coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes football team, Urban Meyer quickly signed on as assistant athletic director of athletics initiatives and relations for the school.
But if you thought that three-time national championship winning coach was going to settle for a mere teacher’s salary, you’re sorely mistaken.
According to Dan Hope of Eleven Warriors, Meyer is slated to make a $100,000 salary in his new role with the Ohio State athletic department.
Meyer’s role will largely be an ambassadorial one, working on various fundraising and athletic development efforts for the school.

Meyer served as Ohio State’s coach for seven seasons, winning seven straight division titles, two conference titles and a national title in the first-ever College Football Playoff.
In 2018, he led the Buckeyes to a 13-1 season, winning the Big Ten title. Prior to the Rose Bowl game against Washington, Meyer announced that he would be retiring as head coach. The Buckeyes went on to win the game 28-23.
His overall record at Ohio State was 83-9, never losing more than two games in a year. His record as a head coach in stints with the Buckeyes, Bowling Green, Utah, and Florida is 187-32.
Meyer has since been linked to a potential analyst’s role with Fox Sports.
