MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University is recommending a new five-year contract for President Gordon Gee.

A news release says school’s board of governors made the recommendation Thursday. The deal next goes to the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission, which has final approval authority.

The terms of the contract have not yet been disclosed.

Gee returned as president of WVU in March 2014. His two-year contract is worth $775,000 annually, including $125,000 from the WVU Foundation’s Milan Puskar President Chair Endowed Fund.

The contract expires June 30, and the new proposed deal would take effect July 1.

He was also president of the university from 1981 to 1985.

The Higher Education Policy Commission is slated to take up the contract on June 24.
