EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - The University of Oregon has announced that its second-highest ranking administrator will retire next year.

The Register-Guard reports (http://bit.ly/21bJFWG ) that Provost Scott Coltrane has decided to retire once the 2016-17 school year is over.

Coltrane had served as the university’s interim provost in July 2013 before accepting the permanent position in February 2014. Months later, he was named university’s interim president after then-President Michael Gottfredson resigned in August 2014.

UO President Michael Schill praised Coltrane in the retirement announcement for his strategic leadership and “grace under pressure.”

During Schill’s time as interim president, he oversaw the university through the rewriting of the school’s handling of sex assault reports, faced high-profile lawsuits and a strike by the Graduate Teaching Fellows Federation.

Coltrane’s annual salary is more than $377,000.
