No one should be "guaranteed" a job ever. It doesn't work this way in the real world, and sure as heck shouldn't work that way in the fantasy world of quasi government entities like a university. This is what's wrong with that environment now. Professors and administrators are servants of the tax payer and should be held accountable by the tax payer for their performance. Her self serving press conference a week ago was enough to indicate she shouldn't be guaranteed a job. Or Steinmetz either. These people think they are immune or untouchable. They are evaluated on how well they grow something by spending our money, rather than saving it. It's a terribly upsidedown and perverted system. They are simply leaches on the government dole. Step out of your bubble and go earn a living in the real world for a change.

On the other hand, I'm all for the extra $5k per month if states she will never get in front of a microphone again while employed at the UofA.

Almost a $250,000 a year job? So what does she do to earn that? Is it any wonder why a college degree costs so damn much. We're paying too much and expecting too little. The fact that her boss had the Board direct him to fire Long (meaning he wasn't aware of any problems) and then he put her in charge gives me the same anxious feeling I have the day I prep for my colon exam.
So called educators have a proven track record of not being good managers, especially with other peoples' money.
