University of Tulsa announces firing of months-old President Geoffrey Orsak

TULSA - The University of Tulsa President Geoffrey Orsak has been fired after less than three months on the job.

The school announced the termination in a press release Wednesday evening.

TU Executive Vice President Kevan Buck will manage the day-to-day operations of the president in the interim.

Orsak sat down with 2News anchor Russ McCaskey in July, the day after taking over at TU.

"I just fell in love with the university, the people of the university and ultimately the city of Tulsa," said Orsak of his TU recruitment process. "In the end, it was just a marriage made in heaven for me."

The full interview with Orsak can be seen above or in our video section for our app users.

Orsak came from Southern Methodist University as the dean of the Bobby B. Lyle School of Engineering. He succeeded former TU President Steadman Upham , who retired in June.
