UNCW's Miller interviews at Wisconsin-Green Bay, waits for Buffalo State to narrow list


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- UNCW Chancellor Gary Miller still won't talk to anyone in Wilmington about his search for a new job, but folks in Wisconsin will get some time with him today.

Miller is scheduled for a public forum this morning at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, where he is the fifth and last finalist to interview for the school's chancellor position. It's the second of two days of interviews for Miller in Green Bay.

Meanwhile, the Buffalo News reports SUNY Buffalo State is set to narrow its list of finalists for the school's presidency, which currently includes Miller. The newspaper says Buffalo State's College Council scheduled a meeting for this afternoon to recommend three candidates to State University of New York Chancellor Nancy Zimpher. She will then recommend one person to the SUNY Board of Trustees, and the new president could be appointed as soon as the board’s June meeting in Buffalo.

Miller has spoken publicly about his job search only during a media session and forum at Youngstown State earlier this month. The school eventually hired former football coach Jim Tressel as its president.

When Miller's search became public last month, a UNCW spokeswoman had said the chancellor did not want to talk about it to keep from being a distraction ahead of last weekend's graduation. So far, though, Miller still has not granted any local interviews to help explain to the taxpayers who pay his more than $280,000 annual salary.

Hey UNCW Board, Wake up. You

Hey UNCW Board, Wake up. You have a man that has openly expressed his desire to leave. Help him out. Get rid of him. Hire someone that really wants to do good for UNCW. Put a stop to his "Circus Event". Send him packing and focus on his repacement. Don't make it his terms and conditions make it yours.

Why doesn't "UNC'S MILLER"

Why doesn't "UNC'S MILLER" just stay in Wisconsin instead of bothering to come back?
