A controversy over the leadership at Murray State University has jeopardized private funding of two scholarships.

The Paducah Sun and WPSD-TV report Dr. Richard Hurt sent a letter to the university and the governor protesting the board of regents' decision to not renew the contract of university President Randy Dunn. Hurt says Dunn has been a good leader for the school.

Hurt says if the board won't reconsider he will contribute money to Dunn's legal fund instead of to the school for scholarships.

Dunn's contract expires in June 2014.

Meanwhile, two complaints have been filed over a gathering of regents on the night before regents met and voted 7-4 to not renew Dunn's contract. The complaints alleged a possible violation of the open meetings law.
