Graham Spanier No Longer Being Paid By Penn State

As of today, Penn State will no longer be paying Graham Spanier’s lucrative presidential salary.

Yesterday, a Daily Collegian article titled “Spanier still making hundreds of thousands from Penn State,” reported that the former Penn State president is still being paid his $700,000 per year salary until…well…today.

Spanier’s one year sabbatical ended today, a year since he was removed from his post as president. Additionally, Spanier will receive $600,000 as part of an agreement  in his employment contract, which also ended today.

Spanier still holds the position of president emeritus and his status as a tenured professor will be reviewed, according to the Daily Collegian article.

Last week, Spanier was charged with eight counts of crimes relating to the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal. Like fellow accused administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, Penn State will pay for Spanier’s legal expenses.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has implied that it would like to see the three men be tried together, but a trial date has not yet been set.
