Outgoing Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman says he is looking seriously at becoming president……of the University of Nebraska.
Heineman says he may apply for the presidency of the Lincoln university which opened in April with the departure of President J.B. Milliken.
Milliken left to become chancellor of the City University of New York.
Heineman is leaving the governor’s office in January because of term limits.
A search committee and outside firm are working with the university’s Board of Regents to conduct a national search to replace Milliken.
