UW in no rush to hire new President

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) _ It took only seven days to hire to a new football coach at the University of Wyoming, but there's no such rush to hire a new president for the state's only public, four-year college.

UW officials have said little about when a search will commence to find a replacement for former President Bob Sternberg, who resigned after less than five months on the job late last year.

UW Trustees President Dave Bostrom said the university's silence on a presidential search has nothing to do with priorities.

He tells the Casper Star-Tribune that the nature of college athletics requires quickly finding a new head football coach.

Dick McGinity is serving as UW's interim president.

The board of trustee will discuss the presidency at its Jan. 16 meeting.
