The annual salary is $3.2 million plus extensive benefits. Dismissal without cause would cost the University a buyout of up to $12.8 million. The contract term ends December 2018. The whole document is 71 pages long and includes procedures for dismissal for cause (pp. 69-91). Max Brantley at Arkansas Times Blog notes that the release of the contract is a rare gesture of transparency by an institution that only recently refused to release financial information about its football business, invoking the Freedom of Information Act’s “advantage to competitors” exemption.
