WSU president Floyd tells regents he turned down Chapel Hill
Washington State University President Elson Floyd says he has turned down an approach from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, which is looking for a chancellor.
Floyd grew up in North Carolina and graduated at Chapel Hill where he previously worked as vice chancellor.
Floyd told Washington State regents he's fulfilling his commitment to WSU. He was hired in December 2006.
Regent Rafael Stone says regents are impressed with Floyd's performance and are reviewing his annual compensation, which is $650,000 this year.
