The Register-Guard’s Greg Bolt has a story detailing departing Oregon Athletic Director Bill Moos’ resignation agreement with the University. And what an agreement it is:

Departing University of Oregon Athletic Director Bill Moos will receive almost $2 million over 10 years as part of his agreement to leave the university.

The money will come from private donations provided by longtime UO supporter Pat Kilkenny and a small group of fellow donors, according to UO general counsel Melinda Grier. None of the money will come from university funds.

The deal between Moos and the UO, a copy of which the university released Wednesday to The Register-Guard, includes a noncompete clause that bars Moos from working as an athletic director at any major athletic conference schools west of the Mississippi River for the length of the 10-year payout. It also bars him from soliciting any current UO donors on behalf of another school.

Not a bad deal for Moos, although this does mean that he’ll have to wait ten years to get the EWU Eagles the big-time Nike money.
