The UNC Board of Trustees has approved a two-year contract extension for Athletics Director Dick Baddour ’66 that will run through the 2008-09 season.
During Baddour’s nine years in the post, the Tar Heels have won a league-leading 49 Atlantic Coast Conference championships, eight more than Duke, which is second. This year, the Tar Heels tied Duke and Virginia for the ACC lead with five team titles.
Carolina is the only school in the nation that has placed teams in a football bowl game, the NCAA men’s basketball Final Four, the NCAA women’s basketball Final Four and the NCAA baseball College World Series in the past two seasons.
“Dick Baddour is a man of integrity who has led our athletics department for nine outstanding years,” said Chancellor James Moeser. “He is committed to fielding teams that demonstrate excellence in all aspects of University life. … Throughout his tenure, our teams have been at or near the top in the ACC both competitively and academically. We are fortunate to have a leader who understands how athletics complement, yet not consume, our students’ academic experience.”
Baddour’s new contract includes a base salary of $270,000 in 2006-07, $285,000 in 2007-08 and $295,000 in 2008-09.
