BROOMFIELD -- At a light moment during Thursday morning's news conference, ousted University of Colorado athletic director Mike Bohn joked he didn't know whether the full-ride scholarship he once promised his baby grandson will be honored.

"I got you tickets for life, though," Bohn quipped at the event attended by members of the media, supporters and family members -- including his grandson, Chase Tynan.

Tucked into Bohn's separation agreement -- which was chock-full of legal jargon and included a $918,000 buyout -- is a clause that declares he's entitled to lifetime season tickets to CU Buffs football games and men's and women's hoops. He gets up to eight tickets for each sport.

Earlier this week, Bohn was forced to resign after serving as CU athletic director for the past eight years.

At Thursday's news conference, a reporter pointed out the "lifetime season ticket" clause seemed like a bit of an oddity. But those who know Bohn chuckled and said things like, "You don't know Mike."

Bohn -- who met his wife while they were students at Boulder High School -- emphasized that he has deep roots in Boulder, and he helped build up the CU Athletic Department, so it makes sense to still be a fan of the Buffs.

"I recruited a lot of these students," Bohn said.

CU Chancellor Phil DiStefano said at a Wednesday news conference that it's not uncommon to give season tickets to former athletic directors.

During Thursday's event, Bohn said that he will be looking for his next opportunity to "lead and inspire."

And, when he's in town, he plans to catch a few games.

"It will be a great opportunity to come back and watch games and cheer," he said of his season ticket packages.
