Max Nikias was ousted as president of USC amid a sex abuse scandal involving a one-time campus gynecologist, the university’s trustees sent him off with a compensation package that exceeded $7.6 million, according to newly released tax filings.... The filings made public by the university this week cover the 2019 fiscal year, a period during which Nikias served just 38 days as president. Nikias separately received a $3-million loan from the university to purchase a Manhattan Beach home formerly owned by ESPN personality Colin Cowherd. Nikias, who remains a USC professor and a lifetime trustee, could not immediately be reached for comment. But the revelations immediately sparked debate. Diane Ghirardo, an architecture professor and historian who has taught at USC since 1984, called Nikias’ exit package “scandalous,” “disgusting” and “beyond belief.” Ghirardo, who is also a member of Concerned Faculty of USC, rejected the notion that the multimillion-dollar award was necessary to turn the page on his tenure as president, saying it displayed a total disregard for accountability. “You fire him,” she said. “If he doesn’t resign, you fire him and you’ve got grounds for firing him.” https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/usc-paid-former-president-max-nikias-more-than-dollar76-million-in-exit-package/ar-BB16PRiZ?li=BBnb7Kz Still a professor. USC has no business telling it's alums where to donate money when they can't bother to remove this piece of shit from campus. FightOnSC247, Cardinal&Gold, tommytrojan1122 and 8 others like this.
