State university system taps Brogan for chancellor

(Harrisburg) -- The board that oversees Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities has named university executive and former Florida lieutenant governor Frank Brogan as the new chancellor of the State System of Higher Education.

The system's Board of Governors made the selection of Brogan, who was Florida's lieutenant governor for two terms and led that state's university system since 2009, over two other finalists on Wednesday after a secretive search process,

Brogan will be the fourth chancellor to lead the nation's 13th largest public university system, enrolling about 115,000 students.

It is the highest-paid job in state government.

The previous chancellor, John Cavanaugh, was earning $327,500 when he stepped down in February.
