Alvarez gets new contract, raise

Barry Alvarez has a new contract that will keep him as the athletic director of the University of Wisconsin for the next five years.

A Wisconsin State Journal report (http://bit.ly/10I2YGH ) says Alvarez's contract calls for a raise of $25,000. That puts his compensation for 2013-14 at $1.05 million and keeps him among the highest-paid athletic directors in the country.

UW Athletics will pay $500,000 of that salary. The rest is from gift funds at the UW Foundation.

Alvarez turned 66 in December. He coached the Badgers football team from 1990 to 2005. He'll be entering his 10th year as athletic director, the first two in the dual role of coach and AD.

He says he hasn't thought about retirement and will work as long as he continues to enjoy it.
