Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State University is building a $190,000 office suite for retired president Gordon Gee and an assistant.

The Dayton Daily News reports Wednesday (http://bit.ly/15w9iXE) that construction on the Page Hall office begins next month and will be completed Sept. 20.

Ohio State spokesman Gary Lewis said Gee will become a tenured professor in the nearby Moritz College of Law as part of his retirement package, which is not yet finalized.

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.
