New Mexico State Director of Athletics Mario Moccia has signed a new five-year contract to continue leading the Aggie Athletics program through the 2023-24 athletic season. His base salary will be $280,000 per year, with eligibility for a number of retention and performance incentives. A 1989 graduate, Moccia was named the university’s 23rd director of athletics in January of 2015. “We’re extremely pleased to have Mario in charge of our athletics program,” NMSU Chancellor Dan Arvizu said. “Mario has helped us secure extensions to important coaches’ contracts in both women’s and men’s sports, for which we are grateful. Also, during his time, our student athletes have had tremendous success on the field of play and in the classroom despite working with limited resources.” The Aggies have continued to excel in the classroom since Moccia took the reins, with all athletics teams having surpassed an Academic Progress Rate of 930. Moccia was captain of the Aggie baseball team and went on to play in the Detroit Tigers minor league system. – Read More
