Alberto Gonzales, who resigned as U.S. attorney general two years ago, is coming to Texas Tech this fall to teach political science.
Texas Tech Unversity System Chancellor Kent Hance confirmed the hiring on Tuesday. The hiring was first reported on the Austin American-Statesman in its online edition.
Several school officials declined to comment on the story. But a senior business assistant in Tech's political science department, Dora Rodriguez, told the newspaper that Gonzales will teach a "special topics" course on contemporary issues in the executive branch.
Gonzales served as Gov. George W. Bush's personal attorney, then was Texas secretary of state and a Texas Supreme Court justice before joining Bush in Washington.
