MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia University official says the university plans to start a search process for an interim president after President Jim Clements was named to the same post at Clemson University.
WVU Board of Governors Chairman Jim Dailey says procedures are in place to form a search committee. He says that will start "in the immediate near future."
Clements was named Clemson's 15th president on Monday. He had served as WVU's president since 2009.
When Mike Garrison announced his resignation as WVU's president in June 2008, an interim president was named a month later.
