NC State Board Holding Emergency Meeting On Easley Job

An emergency meeting of the North Carolina State University board of trustees has been called to consider a severance package for the official who hired a former governor's wife.

Multiple media outlets reported that the Monday afternoon board
meeting was called to consider a severance package for former
provost Larry Nielsen. He resigned last month after questions were
raised about his hiring of Mary Easley, wife of then-Gov. Mike
Easley.

The university said Sunday the severance package for Nielsen was
more than the amount announced to the public. The school had said
he was to receive nearly $300,000 for six months, but now says the
amount had been raised to $310,000 by University Chancellor James
Oblinger.
