Missouri athletic director Mike Alden has received a two-year contract extension.

The school announced Thursday that Alden’s contract now runs through June 30, 2019.

Alden is paid a base salary of $301,917 and may earn up to $777,976 through a combination of salary and performance incentive income.

The contract extension doesn’t increase Alden’s base salary, performance incentives or any other form of income. Any future raises in base salary are limited to the same percentage raises, if any, for MU.

In a press release issued by the university, Chancellor Brady Deaton praised Alden’s work. “Mike has provided important leadership during a time of transition of conferences,” Deaton said. “His record of integrity is stellar and his national leadership in the NCAA reflects recognition of his orientation to the success of the student athlete.”

According to the release Alden was named the Director of the Year in 2008 by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics, and is currently the third-longest tenured athletics director in Missouri history behind only Don Faurot and Chester Brewer.

Alden has led Missouri athletics since 1998. Before joining Missouri, Alden was director of athletics at Texas State in San Marcos, Teas
