New Ohio State offensive line coach Justin Frye is set to receive an annual salary of $800,000, according to a term sheet obtained by The Dispatch through a public records request.

Frye, who was hired last week to replace Greg Studrawa and also the holds the title of associate head coach for offense, signed a two-year deal.

The agreement remains subject to a completed background check and approval by the university’s board of trustees.

Once a formal contract is finalized, Frye is due a $51,389 lump-sum payment within 30 days.

His annual compensation surpasses the $700,000 that Studrawa made last season, also the same amount that he picked up as UCLA’s offensive coordinator and offensive line coach.

Frye’s offensive line helped the Bruins finish No. 14 in the Football Bowl Subdivision in rushing offense, one of the reasons they ended up with their first winning season since 2015.

Salary terms are not yet available for Tim Walton and Perry Eliano, who were also hired last week as secondary coaches. Walton will focus on cornerbacks, while Eliano will work with safeties.

Jim Knowles, the newly hired defensive coordinator, is receiving $1.9 million per season after signing a three-year deal last month, making him the highest-paid assistant in program history.
