Ohio State is paying Justin Frye $800,000 to be the Buckeyes’ new offensive line coach.

Per the terms of his contract, which was obtained Tuesday by Eleven Warriors through a public records request, Frye – who was also given the title of associate head coach for offense – will be paid an $800,000 base salary in 2022 and will be eligible for “compensation increases as approved by The Ohio State University Board of Trustees for contract years beginning February 1, 2023.”

Frye also received a one-time lump sum payment of $51,839.

Frye’s two-year contract with Ohio State includes the standard incentives for an Ohio State assistant coach, including bonuses for winning the Big Ten East (8.5% of base salary), winning the Big Ten Championship Game (4.25%), making a New Year’s Six game (17%), making a non-CFP bowl game and winning at least nine games (4.25%), making a College Football Playoff semifinal (21.25%) and making the national championship game (25.5%).

By comparison, previous offensive line coach Greg Studrawa made $700,000 in 2021, which was also what Frye was paid as UCLA’s offensive coordinator and offensive line coach in 2021.
