EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A consultant says the likely salary for a new University of Oregon president is near the bottom of 17 similar universities, but benefits make up much of the difference.

Figures presented Wednesday to the Board of Trustees by a Mercer executive pay consultant show the $458,000 annual salary grows to more than $587,000 when health, housing and vehicle benefits are added in.

The Register-Guard newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/1M8XYCV) the board is deciding how much it needs to pay a replacement for Michael Gottfredson who resigned in August.

Mercer lists the presidential pay at Oregon State University at $687,000 and for the University of Washington at $793,000.
