Ohio State University Gordon Gee is retiring following the revelation of recorded remarks in which he criticized Notre Dame, Roman Catholics and the Southeastern Conference.
An Ohio State University trustee says there are no new issues related to the school's recent football troubles.
Ohio State University trustees will spend up to six weeks reviewing the athletic program after the scandal that led to the suspension of five players and the forced resignation of football coach Jim Tressel.
An Ohio State trustee says the university's governing board should be ready to address the school's ongoing football scandal next week.
"It's really about a decision to retire for the reasons that Gordon has articulated," Schottenstein said.
Ohio State trustees learned of "certain offensive statements" by Gee in January, met with the president at length and created the remediation plan for Gee to "address his behavior," board president Robert Schottenstein said in a statement.
