South Ala Trustees Extend Presidential Search

South Ala Trustees Extend Presidential Search

Posted: Updated:

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Trustees are extending the search for a new president at the University of South Alabama. 

The decision came Wednesday after board members couldn't agree to hire any of the three finalists who've interviewed for the position. 

All those candidates are now out of the picture, so trustees have to come up with new finalists for the job.

The job hunt has been going on since spring and included finalists from Illinois State University; Mississippi State University; and West Virginia University.

A search committee is now set to meet again on Nov. 21.

Trustees are seeking a replacement for Gordon Moulton, who retired earlier this year after 15 years as president of the campus in Mobile. Moulton died in September.
