West Virginia University's Board of Governors is holding an emergency meeting to consider a search committee's endorsement of interim President E. Gordon Gee for the job permanently.

The meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday in the President's Conference Room at Stewart Hall on WVU's Morgantown campus.
 
The board would have to rescind a motion approved last November stating Gee wouldn't be a candidate for the permanent job before acting on the search committee's recommendation.
 
The search committee endorsed the 70-year-old Gee during an emergency meeting Friday.
 
The university is seeking a successor to Jim Clements, who left for Clemson University.
 
Gee also was WVU's president from 1981 to 1985. He also served two different stints as Ohio State's president.
