In The Region:

The University of Akron has picked University of Toledo Provost Scott Scarborough as its new president. 

Trustees this afternoon awarded Scarborough a five-year contract paying him $450,000 a year, plus bonuses, housing, a vehicle stipend and club memberships. 

Scarborough was one of three finalists for the job. Another of them -- University of Akron Vice President and former Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel -- is also up for the top job at Youngstown State University.

Trustee Chairman Richard Pogue said after the selection that Scarborough's long experience with public universities in Ohio won him the job.

Here's the trustee's resolution hiring Dr. Scott L. Scarborough's contract:

WHEREAS, The Board of Trustees of The University of Akron has concluded its search for the next President of The University to succeed Dr. Luis M. Proenza; and,

WHEREAS, The Board of Trustees has determined that Dr. Scott L. Scarborough is well suited to assume the presidency of The University of Akron; Now, Therefore

BE IT RESOLVED, That the Board of Trustees appoints Dr. Scott L. Scarborough as the 16th President of The University of Akron, with key terms of employment outlined as follows:

  • Initial Five-Year Term, effective July 1, 2014
  • Initial Annual Base Salary of $450,000
  • University Residence Provided
  • Automobile Stipend Provided
  • Club Membership(s) provided
  • Annual Incentive Performance Bonus of up to $80,000
  • Annual Deferred Compensation $80,000

And, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That the above terms and all other essential terms of the employment relationship shall be more fully set forth in a Presidential Employment Agreement,  which shall be subsequently negotiated and executed and shall be subject to formal approval of the Board of Trustees.
