Florida State University Provost Garnett Stokes, who acted as interim president during the selection and approval of former state Sen. John Thrasher, might be leaving Tallahassee.
On Monday, Stokes interviewed for the provost position at the University of Missouri, reports the Columbia Daily Tribune.
In the next few weeks, MU Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin will choose the school’s new provost from four candidates, to start on campus by the spring semester.
As provost since 2011, Stokes became interim president in March after then-FSU President Eric Barron announced he would be taking a similar position at Penn State University.
Interviewed in September as one of 11 people vying for the FSU presidency, Stokes was not selected among the finalists.
