No decision on ex-Ohio State president's $190K office

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio State University's trustee chairman says no decision has been made on an office for retired president Gordon Gee.

Bobby Schottenstein gave the update Wednesday as he shot down reports that the university would construct a $190,000 office suite for Gee and an assistant.

Schottenstein said a suitable office will be found for Gee with the goal being to use existing space.

The 69-year-old Gee retired July 1, a month after remarks became public that he made months earlier jabbing Notre Dame, Roman Catholics and Southeastern Conference schools.

Gee will remain a tenured professor in the university's Moritz College of Law as part of his retirement package.

University spokesman Gary Lewis says the plan for an office suite in Page Hall was a proposal that hasn't been finalized.
