CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Gordon Gee is returning to West Virginia University as interim president, five months after controversial remarks led to his retirement as president at Ohio State University.
 
The West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission approved Gee's hiring Friday, a day after the WVU Board of Governors made its recommendation to replace Jim Clements without announcing a name.
 
The 69-year-old Gee retired at Ohio State in July after remarks he made jabbing Roman Catholics and Southeastern Conference schools were made public.
 
Gee was WVU's law school dean from 1979 to 1981 and served as university president from 1981 to 1985.
 
The WVU Board of Governors has said the interim president won't serve in the permanent job. Clements accepted the presidency of Clemson University in November.

Oh leave it to WV to hire other state's throwaways. Hopefully he's very short-term. WVU is becoming a very stupid university.
