    The Register-Guard, a morning daily in Eugene, Ore., is seeking to hire a sports reporter to cover the University of Oregon football beat. Our reporter will have big shoes to fill in continuing to provide readers the most comprehensive, accurate and insightful coverage in print, online and in social media of one of the top college football programs in the country. Our nationally recognized department is looking for a hard-working journalist who can be both independent and a team player, and who sets the highest standards on a beat in which there is no off season. He/she also must combine a lively personality with technical ability to take ownership and engage readers on The Register-Guard's football blog through a number of tools -- including but not limited to writing, comment moderation, photography, video creation and online chatting. Other responsibilities will include at least one other beat, such as Oregon women's basketball, in addition to covering other events and features during the year.

    Applicants must have a minimum of a four-year college degree; salary will be commensurate with experience.

    Salary range is $706.90 to $1088.40 per week.

    All employment offers are contingent on the results of a pre-employment drug screening.

    Qualified applicants should submit an application, cover letter, resume and non-returnable clips by Monday, July 15, 2013, to rgjob.applications@registerguard.com or mail (with postmark by July 15, 2013) to:

    Human Resources Department
    The Register-Guard
    3500 Chad Drive
    Eugene, OR 97408

    Applications and complete job descriptions are available at 3500 Chad Drive, Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. or on our Web site at www.registerguard.com.

    All applicants will receive a response. No telephone inquiries, please.

    Isn't that kind of a wide range on salary? Nearly $400 per week and about $20k per year....

    Or is that typical?

    This is the second job that I've seen covering the Ducks. Sounds like a great gig though.

    I suspect this is connected to The Oregonian's Ducks beat getting filled.

    Is Rob Moseley leaving? He's done a great job for a long time.

    Yep. And yep.
  9. I imagine this is a Guild position. Otherwise, quoting such specific salary ranges would be very unusual.

    Do you get free Nike stuff, like the NCAA does when they slap the Ducks on the wrist?

    This is open because Rob Mosley left to take a job as editor in chief of GoDucks.com.

    *Edited to fix stupidity on my part.
  12. Which is the official team website.

    “The Oregon Athletics Department is on the leading edge of college sports, and I want to help put GoDucks.com on the leading edge of in-house publishing to compete with and surpass the efforts of traditional media,” said Moseley, a 1999 graduate of the University.

    “GoDucks.com, with traffic driven by extensive Twitter and Facebook outreach, will be able to provide the most thorough, in-depth coverage of Oregon football that there is, but it also will enlighten the fan base to other great stories that too often go uncovered by mainstream media newsrooms with ever dwindling resources.”
