“University of Georgia President Michael Adams stands to receive about $2.7 million over five years as part of a retirement agreement the State Board of Regents is scheduled to vote on Wednesday.”
“The agreement, which Chancellor Hank Huckaby signed off on, includes a one-time payment of $600,000 in deferred compensation, according to a document The Atlanta Journal-Constitution obtained through an Open Records request Friday. That payment is in "recognition of extended service of more than 15 years and significant contributions to the institution," according to the document.”
“Adams said he plans to return to teaching and become a member of the UGA faculty. The retirement agreement states he will be a President Emeritus and Regents Professor. He also will have an office, parking and a part-time secretary -- perks given to other presidents once they retire.”

Notice not a peep about all this money for the good old boy Adams in the local rag.

12 The Kaswan Imbroglio
“The year 2003 wasn’t pretty for UGA President Michael Adams,
as recent developments in the decisions he made that year
in the Renee Kaswan case involving her patents to a medical
breakthrough are making increasingly clear. The announcement that
June of his decision to end Vince Dooley’s career triggered an explosion
of public rancor. Then in October, the Deloitte & Touche audit
brought into question Adams’s judgment as well as his ethics….”
“Pulitzer Prize winner Rich Whitt's final work of investigative journalism, Behind the Hedges - Big Money and Power Politics at the University of Georgia, exposes the conflicting imperatives of university technology transfer policies are illustrated in the questionable actions by UGA President Michael F. Adams. Chapter 11 of this investigative tome, titled The Kaswan Imbroglio is available on our site.”

Does the Good Old Boy from the Bible College in Nashville deserve all these millions of public dollars from Georgia while most taxpayers are struggling to hold their jobs and keep their homes and all Adams did was shaft one of the most significant scientists ever to walk the halls of UGA as documented in the above book? This is the Georgia Way. The worse job you do, the more undeserved money you make from the taxpayers.
And not a word of criticism from anyone especially the cowards in the journalism department.
