Ohio St. president Gordon Gee retires after Notre Dame jabs

Ohio State University President Gordon Gee announced his retirement Tuesday after he came under fire for jokingly referring to ''those damn Catholics'' at Notre Dame and poking fun at the academic quality of other schools. Ohio State initially called the remarks unacceptable and placed Gee on a ''remediation plan'' to change his behavior. Gee, 69, said in a statement that he decided during a vacation last week to step down on July 1. (Yahoo! Sports)
