FSU presidential search consultant Bill Funk resigns
Bill Funk, the man hired to help Florida State University find its next president, resigned abruptly today.
The move comes a week after the search advisory committee reversed its decision to go along with Funk's recommendation to suspend the search and interview front-runner candidate Sen. John Thrasher. The FSU Faculty Senate also passed a resolution last week saying it had lost confidence in Funk's ability and suggesting a new consultant be hired.
The search committee already was scheduled to meet Wednesday to discuss next steps.
