Alleva gets contract extension at LSU
BATON ROUGE - LSU athletic director Joe Alleva's proposed three-year extension has been approved by the LSU Board of Supervisors.
The board approved the extension without discussion at its September meeting on Friday.
The extension comes without a raise for Alleva, who has been LSU's AD since 2008. It will keep him under contract through 2019.
Alleva makes $725,000 a year with incentives that can increase it to $900,000.
The board also approved three-year extensions for women's basketball coach Nikki Caldwell and softball coach Beth Torino, plus a $35,000 raise for Torino. She will now make $145,000 per year.
Alleva was hired after spending 30 years at Duke, the last 10 as athletic director.
