Beleaguered University of South Florida professor Herb Maschner has tendered his resignation, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

In a story posted online Friday under Claire McNeill’s byline, the 58-year-old Maschner will resign on October 31, 2017.

“In the resignation paperwork, USF says it has no reason to terminate Maschner for misconduct. Both parties agree there was no wrongdoing.”

In January 2017, the Idaho State Journal reported that Idaho State University had paid $170,000 to a woman to settle a sexual harassment claim against Maschner while he was employed at ISU.

“The [University of South Florida] didn’t know that Maschner had violated Idaho State policy for sexually harassing a graduate student until Maschner approached USF three years later, as an Idaho newspaper readied to publish a story.”
