Chancellor update: And then there were three....



The Indianapolis Star is reporting tonight that Thomas Snyder, head of the state's large community college system, Ivy Tech Community Colleges, no longer is interested in becoming Florida's next chancellor.

Snyder was one of three candidates search consultant William Funk recommended to the Board of Governors on Monday. He also suggested FAU President and former lieutenant governor Frank Brogan and former Ohio universities chancellor Roderick Chu. Board members also decided to include FSU associate professor and Capitol veteran Steve MacNamara among the finalists to be interviewed at the end of this week.

With Snyder dropping out, that leaves three -- with Brogan, 55, still the frontrunner.
