NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The new president of the University of New Orleans is expected to be announced Wednesday.

The University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors has narrowed its decision to two finalists: New Orleans Deputy Mayor Andy Kopplin and UNO Provost John Nicklow.

The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1SNRz7H ) reports the board was scheduled to announce its decision late last month, but the board deferred its decision. After hours of interviews with the two candidates and deliberation among board members, the board said they needed more time to discuss and stormy weather forecasts were cutting their time short.

The special board meeting called for the selection of the university’s next president will be at 1:30 p.m. in the Claiborne Building in Baton Rouge.

Former UNO President Peter Fos retired in January.
