New PSU president to be named Monday

By: Sarah Rebb and the Associated Press

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Florida State Universitys president, who is a former Penn State professor, said he is leaving the school. His announcement comes two days before Penn States trustees plan to vote on a new president.

Penn State officials are not confirming whether Eric Barron is under consideration in the secretive process.

Barron did not appear to tell the Tallahassee Democrat that he expects to get the Penn State position.

The Penn State Board of Trustees is to hold a special meeting at 12 p.m. Monday, Feb. 17, in Deans Hall of the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel to consider a presidential appointment.

The meeting is open to the public.

A press conference is scheduled for after the meeting and will be streamed live.

Penn State President Rodney Erikson announced last year that he would retire at the end of his current contract.
