meanwhile, back at the ranch
There's a random report out there that David Garland, dean of Truett Seminary, will be named interim president of Baylor in a news conference later this morning. Garland denies that he's been interviewed for the position. As of now, there's not a story in the DMN, but here's the overview of the rumors from the Waco Trib.
If it's true, that would be great news for Baylor. It would also be very surprising. I guess we'll see.
UPDATE: It's official. This is great news for Baylor, and a hopeful sign that the regents will be sensible in their choice of a new president. David Garland is a trustworthy, outstanding individual, and he will do a great job at managing yet another messy period in Baylor's history.
