Motlow State gets temporary replacement for president who made a controversial exit, The Tennessean
In an article published June 30, 2017, Washington, DC partner Raymond D. Cotton discusses the severance pay of Motlow State previous president Tony Kinkel. Mr. Cotton, whose practice includes a focus on contracts for college presidents, said three months of severance pay is "perfectly reasonable" by industry standards. He referred to the pay as "relocation fees" that could compensate an administrator for moving across the country for a job that didn't work out.
“People like him, clients of mine, are risking the income of their family and their reputation” to take a job like the presidency at Motlow State, Cotton said.
