Fired Fort Worth medical center head blasts UNT System chancellor

Lee Jackson, chancellor of the University of North Texas System, misstated facts, lacked the knowledge to lead operations and allowed "pride and ego" to influence his decision-making, the leader of Fort Worth's Health Science Center said last month, according to a searing presentation released by his spokeswoman.

What were the real reasons behind the abrupt dismissal of Ransom because it would expose UNT system to expensive litigation, settlement and severance package?

It can be speculated that the average of severance compensation usually covers at least 2 years of salary, i.e,$2M.

Hundreds of students would not get the scholarships from the money loss due to the firing of Ransom or tuition will be raised to pay for it.
Both Ransom and Jackson are men of high ambition and strong headed. Dr. Ransom would not go away quietly with a tarnished reputation on his resume. Litigation or appeal will only spill more dirty laundry of the UNT system. The cost of firing Ransom may end up costing a few million dollars. This unnecessary financial loss could have better used to provide financial aid to students, a few hundreds of college-tuition scholarships could have been given to needed students.
