Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer lost out on a sizable amount of money during his three-game suspension.

According to USA Today, the Buckeyes coach lost out on $570,507.68 during his suspension for the mishandling of fired assistant Zach Smith, who had been accused multiple times of domestic violence. The same report indicated offensive coordinator Ryan Day will be paid $487,000 for leading the team in Meyer’s absence. (RELATED: URBAN MEYER’S PUNISHMENT HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED.

You know that you’re taking a huge hit whenever you lose more than $500,000 in a matter of a few weeks. There’s no way to spin that in a positive direction at all. That would ruin most people’s lives. That’s more money than most people earn in a few years, and Meyer list in a few weeks. Absolutely brutal.

On the other hand, Meyer is making millions of dollars every year. He’s one of the highest paid men in all of sports. He’s making $7.6 million a year. Something tells me that be might still be enough to put food on the table at the end of the day.

As for me, send a rescue party for me if I ever lose half a million dollars over the course of a few days because that will absolutely be rock bottom.
