Herald Exclusive: FIU AD Garcia signs five-year extension

Over on MiamiHerald.com, we broke this pretty significant piece of news about the future of FIU athletics (contrary to what you may have read on message boards):

    While the University of Miami’s six-week-old search for a new athletic director continues to drag on,     cross-town FIU has taken steps to keep its department’s leader in place for years to come.

    Last week, FIU athletic director Pete Garcia signed a five-year extension to a contract that would     have expired in October, providing the Miami native with stability, more money – and a new title.

    Garcia is now FIU’s executive director of sports and entertainment, putting him in charge of far more     than just the school’s intercollegiate athletics program.

What do you think about the deal? Good for the university? Feel free to comment below.
