Former Consol Energy Vice President P. Jerome Richey will become the University of Pittsburgh's top lawyer on March 1.

Pitt Chancellor Mark Nordenberg said Richey, who has been at Consol since 2005, succeeds Jerome Cochran, who headed Pitt's 12-lawyer legal department and served as chief business officer since 2004.

Cochran, who is paid $493,000, will retain the title of executive vice chancellor and continue to serve as Pitt's chief business officer, Nordenberg said.

“This shift in responsibilities also will permit Jerry Cochran to focus on the university's increasingly complex array of business needs as we continue to move through financially challenging times,” Nordenberg said.

Pitt officials did not disclose what Richey's compensation will be. He earned his undergraduate and law degrees from Pitt.

According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Richey announced his intent to retire from Consol late last year and received a $772,000 separation payment from the Cecil-based energy company.
