Pay boost proposed for UA athletic director Jeff Long

Posted By on Sat, Nov 17, 2012 at 5:55 AM

GOOD YEAR: UA Athletic Director Jeff Long.
  • GOOD YEAR: UA Athletic Director Jeff Long.
University of Arkansas Chancellor David Gearhart, telling Athletic Director Jeff Long he was "very appreciative of your outstanding leadership," has proposed significant enhancements in his existing contract and an extension through 2017. The deal must be approved by the UA Board of Trustees.

It would move Long to $900,000 a year, which KFSM reported would put him in the top 10 nationally and 3rd in the SEC, according to a USA Today survey. Long has been mentioned frequently as a contender for similar jobs at other universities.

Long's base pay would be increased from $450,000 to $500,000 annually July 1; the Razorback Foundation would kick in an additional $250,000 for "personal services" and he'd also receive $150,000 at the completion of each year, for a total of $900,000 annually. He'd also have the potential for receiving $250,000 more for achieving performance incentives (winning teams, academic success of athletes, etc.).

He also will get a $50,000 bonus this year "in recognition of your outstanding performance and the additional duties you are performing this year."

Here's Gearhart's letter to Long.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
