SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah College of Applied Technologyboard will reconsider its choice of school president amid allegations that the board violated state law in choosing him.

In October, the board rehired Robert Brems, who resigned as UCAT president two years ago, to replace Richard White. But Thomas Bingham, UCAT board chairman, says the board wasn't transparent enough in making its choice.

Only the board's selection committee, not the full board, interviewed the finalists.

Also, Utah law requires the names of finalists for the position be publicly disclosed, but the board didn't announce them until the meeting began. Bingham says the meeting agenda also should have been clearer about the board's plans to hire a president that day.
