The Texas Tech Board of Regents has confirmed the hiring of Duane Nellis to be the university’s new president starting June 15. The board had to wait 21 days under Texas state law before voting to approve Nellis’ hiring, and the University of Idaho president’s imminent departure was announced March 1 to fall under accordance with the statute. A Texas Tech spokesman said the board discussed Nellis’ employment in executive session before convening in open session and voting unanimously. Nellis is scheduled to be in Lubbock, Texas, on Monday to address the campus and local media/Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.
