FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long has agreed to his second raise in 13 months, this one the result of interest from Texas.

His new contract, which will raise his annual salary to $1.1 million by next summer, also includes a one-time $100,000 bonus.

The Dallas Morning News reported over the weekend that Long was one of three finalists for the athletic director job at Texas. He then issued a statement Sunday evening saying he was not seeking another job.

In the contract amendment, which was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by The Associated Press, Arkansas officials said they were aware that ''another institution of higher education with significant resources'' had expressed interest in Long.

The Longhorns have announced the hiring of Steve Patterson.
