Does Texas Tech Need a New President?

It looks like Texas Tech officials need to start searching for a new president. As NewsChannel 11 first told you Thursday, David Schmidly is wanted at Oklahoma State, and on Monday an announcement from the university is expected.

According to OSU regents, Schmidly was the unanimous choice of a 27 person search committee, that met with 10 other candidates. Schmidly has been president of Tech for two years, but this position is for president and chief executive officer of the university system, more like our chancellor position. OSU regents have scheduled a special meeting at 3 p.m. Monday for the possible selection of a new president, and Schmidly is expected to be the only candidate there for a series of campus sessions and a public forum with the university community.

OSU President James Halligan announced his retirement in late May after nine years on the job. Halligan said he would stay on the job until a replacement was named. If President Schmidly is hired at OSU, a spokesperson for Tech said Chancellor Dr. David Smith, along with an advisory committee, would choose Schmidly's replacement. Schmidly remains unavailable for comment.
