Ohio State University President Who Offended Catholics Announces Resignation

Ohio State University President Gorden Gee announced on Tuesday that he is retiring. He will step down July 1, reports New York Daily News.

The move follows the revelation that Gee made offensive remarks about the University of Notre Dame and Catholics during a meeting in December.

“You just can’t trust those damn Catholics on a Thursday or a Friday, and so, literally, I can say that,” said Gee, a Mormon, during the meeting.

Gee apologized in a May 30 statement after the comments were revealed in an AP story last week.

In a statement announcing his retirement, he did not reference his earlier actions.

“During my days away, I also spent some time in self-reflection,” said Gee. “And after much deliberation, I have decided it is now time for me to turn over the reins of leadership to allow the seeds that we have planted to grow. It is also time for me to re-energize and refocus myself.”
