Friday, Texas Tech Regents are expected to name an interim chancellor.
It's been speculated that honors college professor Donald Haragan could get the job. He was Tech's president from 1996 to 2000 and served as interim president in 2002.
On Thursday, Texas Tech honored Haragan with a bronze plaque to commemorate his former presidency.
NewsChannel 11 asked Haragan if he thought the regents would name him interim. He said, "Today is about the past and the future is in the hands of the regents."
