PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - 1 of the finalists for the president's job at Portland State
University has withdrawn from consideration.
In a letter to Chancellor George Pernsteiner of the Oregon University System, Texas
Tech president Jon Whitmore said he did not think the Portland State presidency was
a good fit for him or his family.
Whitmore is leaving the Texas Tech job early next year.
