HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Penn State says its former president had total taxable income of $3.3 million last year, including $2.5 million in severance because he was forced out of the job after Jerry Sandusky's arrest on child molestation charges.
The university said Wednesday that Graham Spanier's salary in 2011 was $700,000, plus $83,000 in taxable benefits. The severance total will be paid over five years.
Spanier said he wasn't aware the school had made his earnings public. He declined to comment.
Spanier was charged this year in the alleged cover-up of the Sandusky scandal. He remains a tenured faculty member but is on leave.
He is seeking a delay of his Dec. 13 preliminary hearing on the charges, and asking for their dismissal.
