Barchi and Wolf jointly announced the lawyer’s resignation on Thursday, saying “it is in the best interests of the university that Mr. Wolf resign from the university effective immediately.”

Wolf had worked at Rutgers since 1984.

“While I regret the circumstances surrounding my departure from Rutgers, I always will have very fond memories of the challenges and achievements that I have been a part of and the many colleagues and friends,” he said in a statement.
