CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The state Higher Education Policy Commission is holding a special meeting to vote on Gordon Gee's appointment as West Virginia University's permanent president.

The university's Board of Governors unanimously approved Gee's appointment last week. The commission also must approve the decision.

Commissioners are scheduled to meet at 11:30 a.m. Monday in Charleston.

Gee was named interim president after Jim Clements left for Clemson last November. Gee also served as WVU's president from 1981 to 1985.

Gee also served two stints as president at Ohio State. He retired from Ohio State in July 2013 after he criticized Roman Catholics, Notre Dame and former Wisconsin football coach Bret Bielema, who now coaches at Arkanas. The remarks were made in December 2012 to Ohio State's Athletic Council.
