Former Ohio University president Robert Glidden has stepped down from his fundraising post at the Athens school.

Glidden served as OU's president for ten years before retiring in 2005.

He then signed a controversial three-year contract with the university that required him to work five days a month for $83,000 a year.

Glidden's evaluation last year showed he secured no donations during his first year as a fundraiser.

A final dollar amount on how much he raised for OU since 2005 wasn't immediately available.

The university says Glidden's resignation went into effect on May 31st.
