(Omaha, Neb.) -- The head of the Reading School district has withdrawn as a finalist for the Omaha superintendent job.

The school board was expected to pick either Khalid Mumin or  Sioux City, Iowa, Superintendent Paul Gausman at its meeting tonight.

Instead the board will have to come up with a new plan to replace retiring Mark Evans at the end of the school year.

Mumin and Gausman issued a joint statement Saturday saying they decided to withdraw because they believe neither had broad support from the board.

School board member Ben Perlman says members felt  neither Gausman nor Mumin were a perfect fit for the district.
