NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WAVE) - The man who formerly served as Kentucky's education commissioner has a new job less than a week after stepping down from his old one.

Dr. Wayne Lewis, Jr. was named Monday as the inaugural dean of the School of Education at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee.

Lewis, who had been appointed education commissioner by former Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, resigned on Dec. 12 after reaching an agreement with the new board appointed by current Gov. Andy Beshear.

Lewis will begin his duties at Belmont on January 1, 2020.
