Pinkel takes fundraiser job with University of Missouri

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – Former University of Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel will remain at the university as a fundraiser and ambassador, earning nearly $1 million over the length of a three-year contract.

The university announced the contract Thursday. It calls for Pinkel to earn $350,000 in both 2016 and 2017, and $250,000 in 2018.

Pinkel announced his retirement in November. He was diagnosed with a form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the spring but kept the diagnosis quiet until his retirement announcement. Pinkel, who is 63, led Missouri to a 118-73 record and 10 bowl appearances in 15 seasons.

The university says his new role will include assisting with fundraising and “donor/fan engagement,” along with serving as an adviser and an ambassador for the university at public appearances.
