Long Beach Athletic Director to Take Same Post at Temple

February 28, 1996|JASON REID

Dave O'Brien, Long Beach State athletic director, will be introduced today as Temple's new athletic director at a morning news conference.

O'Brien, who has been in Philadelphia since Sunday night interviewing with Temple officials, told Long Beach President Robert Maxson on Tuesday that he had accepted Temple'soffer.

Maxson promoted O'Brien from interim to permanent athletic director in 1991.

O'Brien, 39, will receive a base salary of about $150,000, compared to his Long Beach salary of about $100,000. Perks and bonuses could push the multiyear package considerably higher, sources said.

Maxson will name an interim director soon, then will select a committee to conduct a national search for a permanent replacement.
