WVU BOG will take more time to name interim president

West Virginia University

The West Virginia University Board of Governors spent more than two hours in executive session on Tuesday, but didn't come to a final decision on who to name as the school's interim president.

The BOG will meet again Thursday, and a school spokesman says the board will take up the discussion then, as well as finalize procedures for the national search for a full-time replacement.

Recommendations for both will go before the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission for approval on Friday.

WVU President James Clements is leaving the school to take the same post at the University of Clemson. Clements has held the post at WVU since 2009.
