MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Four finalists have been named in the University of Memphis' search for a new president.

The Commercial Appeal reported (http:// bit.ly/1lfNEgp) that the Tennessee Board of Regents selected M. David Rudd, provost at the University of Memphis; George Hynd, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at the College of Charleston; Sharon Gaber, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at the University of Arkansas; and Guy Bailey, former president and a current professor at the University of Alabama.

The candidate who's chosen will replace interim president R. Brad Martin, who has been serving since the June 30 retirement of Shirley Raines.

The finalists will visit the university campus March 16 to 25 for interviews with the search advisory committee and for campus forums among students.
