Louisiana Tech wants $23K raise for athletic director
RUSTON - Louisiana Tech wants to give its athletic director a new five-year contract and a $23,000 raise.
The Louisiana Tech Foundation would supply the proposed raise for Tommy McClelland, bringing his pre-bonus total to $248,000 a year.
Tech says the school would still pay $140,000 a year, while the foundation's share would rise to $108,000.
McClelland could earn up to $40,000 in bonuses for bowl games, tournament appearances and fundraising.
It's one of three Tech contracts the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors is to consider Sept. 9.
Men's basketball coach Eric Konkol is being offered a one-year extension to the five-year contract he signed in 2015. He'd still get a $400,000 salary.
New women's basketball coach Brooke Stoehr would get $175,000 a year for six years, plus foundation additions rising from $31,000 to $71,000. She could also earn up to $135,000 in bonuses.
