Combs Resigns from Board of Trustees

F. Michael Combs, citing the need to spend more time with his family, resigned from the UT Board of Trustees Wednesday. The music professor is also facing investigation from the Knox County Sheriff’s Office on rape charges.

I was very surprised to hear this. Dr. Combs had served as faculty advisor for the College Republicans the entire time I’ve been involved in the organization, having only resigned last month. Even so, I only met Combs once, during the now infamous meeting between the CR officers and the Issues Committee officers, with Dean Thompson, so I don’t know Combs personally, but I am shocked by the investigation. We’ll see how this develops.
