SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - State Sen. Aaron Osmond won’t be serving as the new president of the Utah College of Applied Technology after all.

The lawmaker was appointed to the role less than two weeks ago, but said Monday that he’s decided instead to take a counter-offer from his current employer, a testing service company used by the technology college.

Osmond, a Republican from South Jordan, says he will still resign from the legislature, and moved up his resignation date to Dec. 1.

The college board will select a new replacement for outgoing president Robert Brems, who is retiring to serve a Mormon mission in Barcelona, Spain.

Brems resigned from the job once in 2007, after an audit found the college had built a parade float for the Utah County Republican Party. He was reappointed as president in 2009.
