Former University of Illinois President Michael Hogan will teach two history classes at the university's Springfield campus under the $285,100-a-year employment agreement he reached after resigning from the school's top post. Hogan will start teaching the classes in the 2013-14 school year after a year of paid sabbatical. One of the classes could be taught online. Hogan was appointed as a Distinguished Professor of History as he resigned under pressure from faculty over his management style and plans for the university. Hogan's predecessor Joseph White is now paid $288,700 a year to teach two to three business classes a year. A university spokesman says Hogan is now living in Ohio.
