Oakland University names new president

Posted: Updated:
OAKLAND COUNTY (WJRT) -  (07/09/14) - Oakland University has a new president.

The Board of Regents just named George Hynd as the school's next president.

Hynd used to work for the College of Charleston in South Carolina.

He replaces Garry Russi, who suddenly retired on the day his wife was fired as the school's women's basketball coach.

Last year, the university accused coach Beckie Francis of abusing players over their weight and pushing her Christian views on them.
