Kevin McRae is associate commissioner of higher education for human resources. He tells the Missoulian the Board of Regents agreed to continue to pay O’Day through June 2013 for a total payout of over $155,000, plus benefits.

He will be paid his salary and benefits until his contract ends on Dec. 31.
