Ohio State trustee board gives president pay increase, bonus



Published: Fri, December 9, 2011 @ 6:30 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio State University trustees approved a pay increase of about $16,000 for President Gordon Gee and a performance bonus of about $143,000.

The change approved today raises Gee’s base salary 2 percent to $834,530, and awards a 17.5 percent bonus. Last year, Gee received a 2 percent salary increase and 37 percent bonus.

The university says the bonus comes from nonpublic funds.

Amid a scandal involving the football team, the university has been questioned over the past year about how it handled player suspensions, the departure of coach Jim Tressel and subsequent NCAA problems.

Gee was criticized early on for responding “I’m just hopeful the coach doesn’t dismiss me” when asked if he had considered firing Tressel.

Gee led Ohio State from 1990 to 1997 and returned in 2007.
