More $ for Moore

Mobile Press-Register: “It is my goal over the next two years, if possible, to move him (Mal Moore) either to No. 1 in the SEC or very close to it,” said UA president Robert Witt, who added, “His performance over the last six years has been exceptional.”

Moore already earns $425,000 per year, or third most of any Athletic Director in the SEC.

Other highlights from the Press-Register interview with Moore:
Bryant-Denny expansion still planned, and Moore hopes to “make something happen in the very near future.”

UA likes the neutral-site games like the FSU game from last year and the Clemson game this season.

Moore sees basketball season as an “important year” for coach Mark Gottfried. More also explained a bit more about his expectations for the basketball program:

here’s no question that people are vocal and have the right to be. They buy their tickets and come in. Mark understands what he’s got to put on that floor. He’s got to put a competitive team out there and win games. He understands that. We’ll do everything in our power to make it happen.

Lots more in the Press-Register’s Q&A with UA’s athletic director. It is good summer reading.
