TALLAHASSEE - Florida State University trustees are holding an emergency meeting in the wake of the resignation of President Eric Barron.
Barron earlier this week agreed to become president of Penn State University. He is going to get a base salary nearly double what FSU was paying him.
Trustees will meet Wednesday to determine the process for selecting a replacement.
Barron's contract states that he is required to turn in notice of his resignation 180 days ahead of time. But Penn State already announced Barron will start his new job by May 2.
A spokeswoman for FSU said that trustees will discuss the notice requirement during the emergency meeting.
Barron was getting paid more than $400,000 a year, but he also was paid hefty bonuses for meeting performance and fundraising goals.
