STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ There is no shortage of candidates for the presidency at the University of Connecticut.
Board of Trustees chairman Larry McHugh says more than 100 people have been nominated to succeed Michael Hogan, who left earlier this year to become president of the University of Illinois.
McHugh told the Hartford Courant that he was not sure how many of the candidates nominated had actually submitted applications for the job.
He said a search committee could begin interviews as early as next month.
McHugh said the nominees include presidents and provosts from other large universities as well as presidents and deans of smaller schools. There are also some candidates from outside the academic world.
