Like a professor emeritus, a professor ameritus is a professor who has retired except in this case without having racked up any meritorious accomplishments such as publications, research grants, or teaching awards; a retired academic goldbrick.
Having accomplished nothing throughout his long academic career except collecting a substantial undeserved salary and enviable retirement benefits, they should've conferred the title of professor ameritus (i.e. without merit) upon him.
