AT&T chief recommended as head of Florida universities


Published:

TALLAHASSEE – A search committee is recommending the president of AT&T Florida as the new chancellor for Florida’s university system.

The committee unanimously recommended Marshall Criser III – the son of a former University of Florida president – during a Tuesday meeting in Orlando. The panel is made up of seven members of the Florida Board of Governors. The full board is expected to make a final decision later this month.

University system officials are looking for a permanent replacement for Frank Brogan. He left the job at the end of September to take a similar job in Pennsylvania.

The panel interviewed three other finalists: Mark Drummond, former chancellor of the California community college system; Jim Purcell, commissioner of the Louisiana Board of Regents; and Bruce Rafert, provost at North Dakota State University.
