USM provost resigns, feels ‘pretty bad’ about leaving
Published: November 17,2011
HATTIESBURG — Bob Lyman has resigned his post as University of Southern Mississippi provost.
The Hattiesburg American reports Lyman will stay on at Southern Miss as a psychology professor. Lyman said Wednesday it was still being worked out with the department chair as to whether he would teach classes next semester.
The 64-year-old Lyman said earlier this year he would probably stay at Southern Miss until June 2013, the original date of his planned departure as provost.
He did not elaborate as to what pushed up the date of his resignation, only stating that he was feeling “pretty bad” about resigning his position and that the reason was not health-related.
Vice president for research Denis Wiesenburg will take on additional provost duties until the end of the academic year.
