The University of Akron has named its next president. Dr. Scott Scarborough will leave his position as Provost at the University of Toledo to take over for current Akron president Dr. Luis Proenza. Dr. Proenza will retire at the end of June. 

Former Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel was one of three finalists for the position. He remains a candidate for the presidency at Youngstown State, the school he coached to four national championships in the 1990s.
