Report: Jeffrey Vitter to Resign as Chancellor of Ole Miss
Breaking news in Oxford, Mississippi this morning.
According to Chase Parham and Neal McCready of RebelGrove.com, senior staff members at the University of Mississippi were informed at 9:30 am on Friday, November 9, 2018 that Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter is resigning.
Ole Miss and the IHL will officially announce sometime today.
Chase Parham and Neal McCready wrote on RebelGrove.com:
“Be aware that Vitter was hired to the university as a distinguished professor of computer and information science, and it’s possible to likely that he maintains that title while searching for other employment. His contract — which he has done nothing to void — runs through June 2020. We’re told he’s likely to remain in position until the end of the calendar year.
Also be aware that this is a long process to find the replacement, and to be frank it’s going to be a fight. Multiple factions of Ole Miss stakeholders are going to support different candidates, and one source told us earlier today that the fight will be representative of the thought that this is the most important decision on behalf of the university in a long time.
We expect an interim to be named, but other than rumor there’s nothing concrete there yet.”
