(Philadelphia) -- Temple University has removed its provost amid a $22 million shortfall in financial aid.

The college in Philadelphia has announced Hai-Lung Dai was relieved of his administrative responsibilities.

It's not clear if the removal was tied to the shortfall and the university declined comment on his removal, saying it was a personnel issue.

In a statement, Temple said all aid promised to students would be honored and the school has adjusted its budget to offset the shortfall.

His attorney released a statement saying Dai was saddened and called the decision to remove him "rash and completely unjustified."
