Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, smiles as he and his wife, Maureen, are greeted by friends and supporters during a victory party in Virginia Beach. Supporters were celebrating the Supreme Court unanimously overturning Bob McDonnell's conviction.

Former Gov. Bob McDonnell will become a government professor at his alma mater, Regent University, in January.

McDonnell will help create the Governor’s Center for Federalism and Civility, which will help state government understand its place in a federal society.

In September 2014, McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, were convicted of public corruption, but the U.S. Supreme Court in June unanimously overturned the conviction.

McDonnell, who earned a law degree from Regent, said he had long considered becoming a teacher.

“During my painful journey through the justice system after I left the governor’s office, I came to the realization that politics and polls are much less important than people and policies,” McDonnell said in a statement.
