SEATTLE —

The University of Washington Board of Regents has chosen University of Utah President Michael Young as the next leader of the university in Seattle.

Young has been president of the University of Utah since 2004.

The board has delegated Board Chairman Herb Simon to negotiate a contract with Young.

During his time at the University of Utah, the school joined the Pac-12 athletic conference and had a professor as co-winner of the Nobel Prize.

Young was dean of the George Washington University Law School before taking the job at Utah. He also served 20 years on the faculty at Columbia University and worked with the first president Bush.

Previous UW president Mark Emmert left last September to take a job as president of the NCAA.
