UALR's successful women's basketball coach, Joe Foley,  apparently didn't land a new job at Kansas, which was interested, but his winning ways and outside interest have not gone unrewarded.

UALR annnounced Monday that Foley's contract was extended another year, to 2023-24, and he'll get an immediate raise of $53,000 to $215,000. Said a UALR news release:

New contract terms for Foley include an immediate base salary increase of $53,000, with scheduled raises over the next four years that will bring his base salary to $250,000. Foley’s deal includes an additional $15,000 for the head coach’s radio show, bringing his total compensation to $265,000 by 2018.

He'll also get more more money for assistant coaches.

Foley has been at UALR for 12 years and has taken teams to the NCAA tournament, including to a second round game this year in a season with 29 wins.

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.
