A central figure in the furor at North Idaho College has left the school.
Wrestling coach and former interim president Michael Sebaaly resigned on Sept. 23, the Spokane Spokesman-Review reported earlier this week.
NIC has not released details about Sebaaly’s resignation or the reasons for his administrative leave.
Sebaaly was named interim president at the Coeur d’Alene-based community college in October, barely a month after trustees fired President Rick MacLennan without explanation or cause. MacLennan’s ouster, and Sebaaly’s promotion, divided the college’s board of trustees, with both moves occurring on 3-2 votes.
On another divided vote, trustees in June hired North Idaho native and University of Idaho alumnus Nick Swayne to succeed Sebaaly as president. Swayne started on the job in August.
