Details surrounding Murano's exit continue to emerge

Details surrounding Murano's exit continue to emerge

It's been more than two months since Elsa Murano resigned as Texas A&M president, but information requested by The Eagle surrounding her departure continues to slowly emerge.

The most recent open records request answered by Texas A&M involved documents tied to a $16 million loan given to the Athletic Department - a line of credit made public only because Murano mentioned it in a self-evaluation during her performance review.

Former president Robert Gates initiated the loan but never signed a contract, prompting Murano to get one signed soon after she learned about within months of taking office.

The documents obtained by the newspaper show at least one request by the Athletic Department to have the loan "forgiven." E-mails and interviews with officials reveal a department in turmoil as the flagship university's finance department takes over the checkbook for the Athletic Department.
