Gee’s $1.9M salary 3rd among U.S. public colleges
Fired Penn State president ranked No. 1 due to deferred pay, severance.
Columbus — Ohio State University President E. Gordon Gee was knocked off the top spot on the list of highest paid public university presidents but is well positioned to regain the number one post in the coming year, according to a survey released Sunday by The Chronicle of Higher Education.
Gee’s $1.9 million pay package in the 2011-2012 fiscal year was below the $2.9 million paid out to former long-time Penn State University President Graham Spanier and the $2.54 million paid to Auburn University President Jay Gogue, the survey found.
Gogue came to the end of a five-year contract and was eligible for a longevity payout while Spanier received $2.4 million in deferred compensation and severance pay when Penn State fired him in November 2011 for his handling of the child sexual abuse case involving assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
