Texas Tech President Guy Bailey Named President of University of Alabama
Texas Tech’s president will be moving back to Tuscaloosa.
Guy Bailey has been named as the new president of the University of Alabama, following a meeting of their board of trustees.
Bailey, who received two degrees from the University of Alabama, has served as president of Texas Tech since 2008.
In a press release last week, Interim UA President Judy Bonner discussed Bailey, saying that he “has done an excellent job at Texas Tech, increasing momentum and positioning the campus as a major engine for economic development.”
Bailey received a salary and benefits from Texas Tech of more than $422,600 last year, according to the Associated Press, but no details on his salary at UA have been released as of yet.
Bailey will begin at UA in September.
