Chancellor pool just got less crowded...



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. That leaves former lieutenant governor Frank Brogan still the frontrunner in a finalist field that now includes just him plus two others.

Snyder was one of three candidates search consultant William Funk recommended to the Board of Governors on Monday. He also suggested FAU President 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.

The three remaining will be interviewed Friday in Tampa, and the BOG will choose a chancellor that afternoon.
