WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

UNCW Chancellor Gary Miller will not be going to Ohio. The Board of Trustees at Youngstown State University voted unanimously Friday morning to offer the job of president to Jim Tressel.

Miller was a finalist for the position, but is also still in the running to lead Buffalo State College in New York and the University of Wisconsin at Green Bay.

The current UNCW chancellor is expected to visit UW-Green Bay for a public forum Friday, May 16. While he's there, Miller will take part in a series of tours, meetings and interviews.

Earlier this month, Miller toured Buffalo State. During his two-day visit he met with faculty, department chairs and students, in addition to holding a public forum.

Miller replaced former UNCW Chancellor Rosemary DePaolo in 2011. If he leaves UNCW to take another position elsewhere, he would have the shortest tenure as leader of the school since the original president of Wilmington College in the 1940s.
