BATON ROUGE (AP) — The president of the University of Louisiana System has announced his retirement.
Randy Moffett, who's been in the job for four years, said Monday that he will leave the position in the fall to spend more time with his family.
Moffett's retirement comes after a tenure marked by repeated budget cuts that have stripped more than $426 million in annual state financing from higher education in Louisiana. The UL System has lost nearly 46 percent of its state funding since 2008.
The chairman of the UL System governing board, Wayne Parker, says the board will move quickly to start the process for choosing Moffett's successor.
Before being tapped for his current role in July 2008, Moffett had been president of Southeastern Louisiana University.

Title: good riddance
Glad to see this guy go............all he did was take care of himself just like the rest of the pack we have in Baton Rouge.
Looks like he stayed his 4 years to get a good retirement with his highest 4 yrs having a big salary......that is what it is all about for the administrators we have in LA
