NC State extends Yow's contract
Posted November 16, 2012
Raleigh, N.C. — Debbie Yow got an early Christmas bonus Friday when the North Carolina State University Board of Trustees extended the director of athletics' contract and added $50,000 and some bonus opportunities to her compensation package.
Yow's compensation – $354,000 in salary plus $150,000 in supplemental compensation – puts her sixth out of 12 of her ACC peers. Her contract now takes her through June 2017.
Since her hire in 2010, NC State has jumped 52 spots, from 89 to 37, in the Directors' Cup standings and created an athletic hall of fame. Yow has replaced the men's basketball coach and seen the team advance to the Sweet Sixteen.
“Under Debbie’s outstanding leadership, NC State is experiencing a transformation of our athletics program and achieving new levels of success in competition and in the classroom,” said Chancellor Randy Woodson. “NC State is fortunate to have such a passionate leader who is truly dedicated to the athletic success of our teams and academic success of our student athletes.”
