NORMAN, Oklahoma -

A new report shows the University of Oklahoma has paid thousands to re-hire its former band director.

In this case, we are talking about OU's marching band director Brian Britt. To get him back, it took nearly double the amount of money of what he was making two years ago.

Our friends at the Journal Record are reporting Britt will earn around $215,000 in his first year back. This includes his annual salary of $115,000 as band director. He takes an additional role of associate dean of the school of fine arts for $60,000, a one-time bonus payment of $25,000 plus $15,000 to move back to Oklahoma from Texas.

When he left in 2013, he made $115,000.

The university was more than willing to pay for all this after calls for the university to dismiss Justin Stolarik as band director came from alumni and the student body. It's not clear if Stolarik was paid his full $102,000 salary or if he received a fraction of it.

While the increase in pay was attractive, it took more than money to bring him back to Norman. The Journal Record reports Britt had several discussions with OU President David Boren about balancing his time at the university and time with his family.
