Ohio State to pay headhunting firm $200,000

COLUMBUS — Ohio State University is paying a higher education headhunting firm $200,000 plus expenses for its work finding the university’s next president.

The contract with Dallas-based consulting firm R. William Funk and Associates also allows for out-of-pocket expenses for travel and lodging by candidates and Funk consultants and $20,000 for the cost of the company’s administrative support.

Under the contract released by the university Tuesday the company agrees to conduct another search for free if the candidate selected leaves the university within two years.

The university is seeking a replacement for former president Gordon Gee (ghee), who retired in July a month after remarks in which he jabbed Roman Catholics and Southeastern Conference schools were made public.
