2 Ohio State assistants will make $1 million in 2018

The Ohio State University Department of Athletics is increasing salaries and benefits for the members of the football assistant coaching staff after a season in which the team won at least 12 games for the fifth time in six years while winning a Big Ten Conference championship and a Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic championship with a decisive victory over No. 8 USC. The Ohio State forward was held to just 10 points - well below his season average of almost 20 points a game.

The Nittany Lions led by as many as 30 points at one point as OSU had no answer for Carr.

Since the win in Columbus the Nittany Lions won four of their past five games with the lone loss coming on the road to Michigan State.
