As Ian Lind writes in his blog:
We’ve got $200,000 in public funds that went walkabout on Donovan’s watch, and he is being removed from his position as athletic director. And there’s a report of the investigation into the missing money that may or may not be made public.
BUT…yes, it is a big but–Donovan is getting a golden parachute worth more than $600,000 in the form of a newly created job the campus doesn’t need and for which Donovan seems to have only the barest qualifications.
Here’s the job description for Donovan’s new gig:
“…significant responsibilities in designing, creating, articulating, marketing and communicating to the community, including assisting with the evolving land grant mission of the University.”
