LAS VEGAS -- The Board of Regents unanimously approved a three-year contract for Tina Kunzer-Murphy as UNLV's new athletic director. She had been interim director since July.
Kunzer-Murphy's contract, which gives her an annual salary of $240,000, goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2014. She missed getting a $285,000 salary by a seven to six vote. Some regents felt she should be paid the same salary as the athletic director at UNR. Kunzer-Murphy will receive a $10,000 raise in 2015 and 2016 based on her performance. She will also get $25,000 for each year UNLV wins the Governor's Cup.
