TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Outgoing Florida State University Eric Barron said he is sorry how university trustees found out that he was leaving to take the top job at Penn State University.
Barron made his brief apology Wednesday during a meeting of FSU trustees.
Penn State appointed Barron on Monday, but news about the pending decision began to circulate last Friday.
Allan Bense, chairman of the FSU board, acknowledged Barron told him more than a week ago. Bense last week said he had not gotten "official confirmation" that Barron was leaving.
FSU trustees on Wednesday discussed a search for a new president. Trustees also agreed to waive a clause in Barron's contract that required him to turn in his resignation notice 180 days ahead of time.
Barron's last day at FSU is April 2.
