Yale University says it has hired retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal to teach a graduate level seminar on leadership on its New Haven, Conn., campus.

McChrystal is the former commander of the Afghanistan war. He was fired in July by President Barack Obama because of disparaging comments he and his aides made about their civilian bosses.

Yale announced Monday that McChrystal's seminar will "examine how dramatic changes in globalization have increased the complexity of modern leadership." McChrystal said in a statement accompanying the release that he was looking forward to sharing his "experiences and insights as a career military officer."
