OU Board of Regents Chair Resigns

Clay Bennett, OU Board of Regents Chair, announced his resignation last night at the Regents meeting. Bennett is also the majority owner of the Oklahoma City Thunder and is part of the reason the team moved to OKC.

It was Vice Chair of the OU Board of Regents Leslie Rainbolt-Forbes who made the announcement. Rainbolt-Forbes stated that the decision was due to health reasons and will be effective immediately.

Bennet was appointed by former Governor Mary Fallin back in 2011.

Although he was private about his health, it was widely speculated that Bennett had been suffering from cancer for several years.

Rainbolt-Forbes will now serve as chair.
