ATLANTA (AP) -- State officials have announced Jere Morehead, University of Georgia provost, has been named as the sole finalist for university president.

University System of Georgia officials made the announcement Monday, and say the state Board of Regents will make a final decision on selecting a president for UGA at a future meeting.

Michael Adams, the university's current president, is set to retire from his post at the end of June.

In a release, officials say Morehead previously served UGA as vice president for instruction, vice provost for academic affairs, director of the honors program and acting director of legal affairs.

Morehead, a 1980 graduate of the University of Georgia School of Law, has held a faculty appointment in the Terry College of Business, and serves on numerous state educational boards.
