A third finalist for president of the University of Idaho, Dr. David Dooley, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Montana State, has withdrawn his name from consideration, leaving just two of the original five finalists in the running. The two: UI College of Law Dean Don Burnett, and former Colorado State University President Larry Penley. Dooley said he withdrew after "a series of cordial, candid and informative discussions" between him and the state Board of Education led to a mutual agreement "that our distinct visions for the role, scope, and future of the University of Idaho were not the right fit at this time."
