Budget shortfall forces deep cuts in Ohio St sports program



COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State says it is cutting a handful of jobs, furloughing hundreds of other employees and asking coaches to take pay cuts to deal with a budget shortfall expected to be over $100 million because of the coronavirus pandemic. Athletic director Gene Smith says none of the 36 sports will be cut and athlete support services will be maintained. He says the numbers right now are hard to pin down because it doesn't include TV revenue, which is still being negotiated. Coaches and other contracted employees are being asked to take a 5% pay cut.
