Livengood a finalist for UNLV job

UA Athletic Director Jim Livengood is one of three finalists for the same job at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, the school announced Wednesday morning.

Washington State senior associate athletic director John Johnson and former Oregon athletic director Bill Moos are the other two candidates for the position.

No date has been set for a formal announcement on who will get the job.

Livengood, 62, has held the AD position at the UA since 1994. His $280,000-per-year contract expires June 30, 2010. He is responsible for the hiring of Arizona coaches Mike Stoops, Andy Lopez, James Li, Niya Butts and Sean Miller

At Arizona’s football game against USC at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday, Livengood was asked whether he had visited Las Vegas and if there was any truth to him possibly joining UNLV’s athletic department.

“”I can’t say anything,”” Livengood said.
