Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer just got a little richer.

The Buckeyes coach signed a new contract extension through 2020 that will make him earn about $6.5 million per season.

"Urban Meyer has done an excellent job strengthening our culture of commitment to academics, career development and winning championships," Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said in a statement. "Our young men continue to thrive under his leadership, whether on the playing field where they are national champions, through life skills pursuits like Real Life Wednesdays, internships and job fairs, and academically through program-wide efforts to monitor the progress of every student-athlete which has helped the team achieve its highest graduation success rate at 78 percent.

"Additionally, he continues to develop his coaches and attract talented leaders when needed."

Meyer, of course, led OSU to a national championship this past season. He is 38-3 so far in three seasons coaching the team.
