UA Little Rock's athletic director gets five-year contract

Posted By on Mon, Nov 13, 2017 at 9:42 AM

UA Little Rock announced this morning that Chancellor Andrew Rogerson had given Athletic Director Chase Conque a contract extension. He's now working under a five-year contract that continues through 2022.

Conque has been at the school since 2015.

His deal puts him on a par, in the longevity of coverage at least, with Jeff Long, athletic director on the UA-Fayetteville campus. I'm sure his annual pay is short of Long's $1 million or so. The news release didn't mention pay terms or incentive clauses, though it touted the high GPA of athletes during Conque's tenure.

I've asked for a copy of the Conque contract for details.

UPDATE: A link to the contract here. He's paid $178,800 and is eligible for merit and incentive pay raises. He has an automatic rollover of the five-year contract every year unless notified otherwise by the chancellor. If he's fired for "convenience," he'll be paid time remaining on contract, subject to "mitigation."

  • 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.
