Retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal has been hired by Yale University to teach a graduate course on leadership.

McChrystal was ousted as commander in Afghanistan in July after derisive comments he and his staff made about their political bosses surfaced in an issue of Rolling Stone

In a statement released Monday, Yale announced that McChrystal's seminar would "examine how dramatic changes in globalization have increased the complexity of modern leadership.''

The course will be offered in fall 2010 by Yale's Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, where McChrystal has been appointed a senior fellow. 

The former general said in an accompanying statement that he was excited to share his "experiences and insights as a career military officer."
