AUSTIN, Texas - University of Texas System regents have set a Tuesday meeting to possibly name a finalist in their search for a new chancellor to oversee the 15-campus system.
Among the reported top candidates is Admiral William H. McRaven, who coordinated the operation to kill Osama bin Laden. McRaven is commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command, headquartered in Florida.
Another reported candidate has been Richard Fisher, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.
If the regents name a finalist, the candidate must wait 21 days before being officially confirmed for the job.
The chancellor oversees the system's nine academic and six health campuses.
Current Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa announced in February he would step down to return full time to his job as a transplant surgeon.
