Nice. Seems to be a solid fit, has a history with WVU, and a big sport’s fan. We need to make sure that we have a sports friendly President at our favorite university!

Sources confirmed to MetroNews late Thursday afternoon that E. Gordon Gee will be named interim president at West Virginia University Friday.
The WVU Board of Governors made its choice in a closed door meeting Thursday but chose not to release the name until the state Higher Education Policy Commission approves the action at a meeting set for Friday morning.
There’s been considerable speculation pointing toward Gee, who most recently was the president of Ohio State University. He served as WVU’s president from 1981 to 1985. Before that, Gee was dean of the WVU College of Law.
