The president of Virginia Tech, who has been criticized for the way he handled the campus massacre in 2007, says he's retiring.
Charles Steger, 65, says he'll remain on the job until his replacement is found. The school said a search would begin immediately.
Stegar has been praised for his fundraising abilities and bringing Virginia Tech's athletics program into the Atlantic Coast Conference. But his handling of the April 16th, 2007, shooting that killed 33 people has been the source of criticism and lawsuits.
Some victims and parents blamed Steger for not giving the campus enough warning that a shooter had killed two students in a residence hall. Two hours later, a student gunman killed 30 additional students and faculty then himself.
