Oakland University to name new president Wednesday
Question of the Day
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - The Oakland University Board of Trustees has scheduled a special meeting Wednesday to name a new president, one year after the sudden retirement of Gary Russi on the day his wife was fired as women’s basketball coach.
The school issued a statement Tuesday saying that the board will meet at 10 a.m. Wednesday “to appoint Oakland University’s next president.”
About 20,000 students attend Oakland. Its campus spans 1,443 acres in the Oakland County cities of Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills, about 20 miles north of Detroit.
University Vice President Betty Youngblood has served as interim president for the past year.
Russi became president in 1995 and quit June 12, 2013. That day, the university fired Beckie Francis as coach, saying she abused players and pushed her Christian beliefs on them.
