“I mentioned during our April 16th virtual forum that I would be the first layoff. Meaning, I will go without a salary if layoffs become necessary. They are now necessary and I am holding to that commitment,” Wyatt wrote to staff in an email obtained by KSL.com on Friday. “I have had others reach out to me with offers to help with a temporary salary reduction, early retirement, or willingness to take on additional responsibilities. Everything will help.”
Wyatt is the highest-paid employee at the university. KSL NewsRadio reported in 2018 that his base salary was $274,000 that year.
