Gee to Make Nearly $6 Million in New OSU Role
COLUMBUS -- Former Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee will be paid nearly $6 million by the university over the next five years as he moves into a new role on campus.
Gee will serve as a faculty member with OSU's Moritz College of Law, as well as the university's president emeritus, for as long as he chooses, according to an announcement released by OSU's board of trustees on Monday.
"It was my great calling to have led Ohio State for 14 years, and I am proud to be able to continue my work for Ohio and Ohio State," Gee said. "I am also looking forward to deepening our understanding of the changing nature and role of higher education in the 21st century."
Gee will also conduct educational policy research at OSU. The 69-year-old's new positions will earn him a total of $5.8 million, which will be paid in installments over a five-year period.
Gee served as OSU's president on two occasions, most recently during a period from October 2007 to July 2013, at which time he stepped down after making controversial comments about Catholics and rival universities, including Southeastern Conference schools and the University of Notre Dame.
This agreement recognizes Gordon Gee's distinguished service at Ohio State, and underscores his stature as a national leader in higher education," board of trustees Chairman Robert H. Schottenstein said.
Gee will perform many of his new duties inside a spacious $190,000 office planned for the John Glenn School of Public Affairs that was approved by the board of trustees, according to public records.
Construction on the office is scheduled to begin Aug. 1.
Gee maintained a high national profile during his tenure as OSU's president, and has been as well known for his off-the-cuff remarks as his contributions to higher education. In addition to the comments that immediately preceded his retirement, Gee made headlines during the OSU football team's infamous 2010 "Tattoo Gate" scandal, when he commented on the future of then-head coach Jim Tressel by saying, "I'm just hopeful the coach doesn't dismiss me."
Gee also spurred controversy in 1992, when he called former Ohio Gov. George Voinovich a "damn dummy," and again in 2010, when he criticized the opponents played by the Texas Christian University and Boise State University football teams by saying the Buckeyes "do not play the Little Sisters of the Poor."
