Greg Schiano received a considerable raise ahead of his second season as Ohio State defensive coordinator and safeties coach.
The Buckeyes inked Schiano to another 1-year deal worth a base salary of $700,000, according to his contract obtained by Eleven Warriors. Schiano made $600,000 in 2016, also from a 1-year contract.
The base salary of $700,000 makes Schiano Urban Meyer's highest paid assistant coach for the 2017 season. He signed his new contract on May 8.
Schiano's new deal is set to expire on Jan. 31, 2018 and is renewable upon an offer from Ohio State and an acceptance by Schiano.
The figures are a result of an open records request submitted by Eleven Warriors on Feb 9, 2017, and filled Wednesday by Ohio State.
As always, Schiano can earn additional money if the team reaches certain milestones in 2017. Among those include these, plus other perks:
- An 8.5 percent base salary supplemental compensation for winning the Big Ten East Division.
- A 4.25 percent base salary supplemental compensation for winning the Big Ten Championship.
- Participation in a College Football Playoff postseason game: 17 percent base salary additional compensation.
- Participation in non-College Football Playoff postseason game and 9-win season: 4.25 percent of base salary bonus.
- Participation in semifinals (but not finals) of College Football Playoff: 21.25 percent base salary additional compensation.
- If Ohio State wins the CFP semifinal, Schiano is not entitled to his 21.25 percent additional base salary compensation. Instead, he receives an additional 25.5 percent base salary compensation.
- A car loan of $600 per month.
- Nine football season tickets and two men's basketball season tickets.
