West Virginia University President E. Gordon Gee will earn a total $775,000 under his new contract.
Gee's pay is the same as former WVU President Jim Clements. Gee was named interim president after Clements left for Clemson in November 2013. The Higher Education Policy Commission approved Gee's appointment as permanent president in March.
As interim president, Gee was paid an annualized rate of $450,000. His new contract began this week.
The 70-year-old Gee earned about $2 million as Ohio State's president before he returned to WVU, where he was president in the 1980s.
