ATLANTA (AP) - Steve Wrigley, a top official within the University System of Georgia, will become its chancellor in 2017.

Wrigley was scheduled to become interim chancellor on Jan. 1, but the system’s governing Board of Regents voted Wednesday to name Wrigley to the top job. Chancellor Hank Huckaby announced in August that he planned to retire at the end of the year.

Wrigley has worked for the system since 2011 after holding a variety of positions in higher education and Georgia state government since 1988. He now holds the position of executive vice chancellor for administration.
