WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- UNCW Chancellor Gary Miller is among the finalists for the president job at an Ohio university.
The Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports Miller is one of six finalists that were scheduled to be interviewed via Skype yesterday and today for the top job at Youngstown State University. The finalists also include former Youngstown State and Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel.
Miller came to UNCW in the summer of 2011. He replaced Rosemary DePaolo, who retired.
UNCW spokeswoman Janine Iamunno confirmed Miller's candidacy for the Youngstown State job.
"Chancellor Miller has been invited to explore other presidential opportunities in higher education. The chancellor and Mrs. Miller continue to be dedicated to UNCW and this community, and respectfully request that this development not interfere with the celebration of our students' upcoming commencement ceremonies or the important endeavors of our faculty and staff," Iamunno said in a statement.
