Michael Stokes Paulsen, a prolific and influential constitutional law scholar at the University of Minnes
ota Law School (who currently holds one of the University's distinguished McKnight professorships), has accepted a senior offer from the University of St. Thomas, also in Minneapolis. That's a big coup for St. Thomas, which under the leadership of Dean Thomas Mengler (formerly Dean of the University of Illinois College of Law) seems to be flourishing.

From the Star-Tribune:

Oh, and by the way, we’ve got a new 1.7 million dollar/year basketball coach. Incentives could up this figure and the contract is for seven years. Google keyword search: “Tubby Smith Minnesota”.
