Story Contact: , munewsbureau@missouri.edu

The University of Missouri remains extremely grateful to retired coach Norm Stewart for his outstanding leadership of Mizzou Tiger Basketball and his continued service to the university during the For All We Call Mizzou campaign, which met its $1 billion goal in 2008. MU is fortunate to have thousands of loyal retirees and alumni across the state and around the world who support the university in so many valuable ways, and certainly Norm Stewart has been among the most prominent.  Following his retirement from the university, MU compensated Norm annually for his services, specifically $130,000 in FY04 and 05 and $132,600 in FY06, FY 07, FY 08 and FY 09. The university concluded the financial relationship at the end of the campaign and in the face of major budget challenges.
