Yep, you read that headline correctly. According to a report from Business Insider on Wednesday, Ballmer will not only take control of the Clippers, but he’ll also be taking control of classrooms. The news outlet said Ballmer is set to teach graduate business courses at Stanford this fall, followed by USC’s Marshall School of Business next spring.

Ballmer just recently stepped away from his role on Microsoft’s board, after relinquishing his post as CEO to Satya Nadella, which means the eccentric businessman likely has a lot of time on his hands. And who better to teach a class of aspiring business leaders than Steve Ballmer, who during his tenure tripled Microsoft’s revenue.

Business Insider said Ballmer will be working with another faculty member to teach “TRAMGT588: Leading organizations,” at Stanford, though it’s unclear what he’ll teach at the University of Southern California. Color me super jealous.
