KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The University of Tennessee is paying $75,000 plus expenses to a search firm to help in its hunt for a new Knoxville campus chancellor.

Besides the search fee being paid the Parker Executive Search firm, the university agreed to pay expenses up to $7,500 - in addition to the cost of advertising the job and travel expenses for candidates and search committee members.

The Knoxville News Sentinel (https://bit.ly/2dPozKT ) reports the UT system has a five-year contract with the firm, not to exceed $3 million, which runs through the end of April 2019.

UT officials recently said they had hoped to bring finalists to campus for interviews at the end of October, but said the university still expects to name a successor to Chancellor Jimmy Cheek by year’s end.
