Florida Atlantic University. (Appointed And Promoted).

In a move that signals a career change, Florida's Lt. Gay. Frank Brogan has stepped down in order to become president of Florida Atlantic University. Brogan decided to leave his government post just one month after being sworn into a second term along with Gov. Jeb Bush. Apparently he couldn't resist the call to serve in higher education. But Brogan has his detractors. Some trustees were reportedly leery of his tack of a doctorate degree and teaching experience at the university level, but one noted the school will benefit from his "good political access." Brogan earned $117,990/year as lieutenant governor. His salary at FAU is reported to be close to $290,000 annually.
