Ed Pastilong has announced to WVmetronews that he will give up the daily job responsibilities of athletic director of WVU in 2010 and will officially retire in 2012.
The revised deal is an amendment to Pastilong’s current contract that expires June 30, 2010. The amendment, signed by both Pastilong and WVU President Mike Garrison, raises Pastilong’s annual base salary from $196,000 to $225,000. He’s also eligible for incentive pay depending on the success of the various sports teams.Pastilong has been the WVU AD since 1989. No word on if the basketball game last night was the final straw, but it surely couldn't have helped.
He also will receive a $100,000 incentive bonus if he remains on the job through June 30, 2010 as expected.
Between 2010 and 2012 Pastilong will serve as Athletic Director Emeritus. He’ll receive his base pay of $225,000 with no incentives. In that role, according to the agreement, Pastilong will assist with the transition of the new AD and other duties.
