After a lackluster and controversial tenure, University of Arizona president Ann Weaver Hart will not seek a contract extension the Arizona Board of Regents announced on Friday. Hart's contract expires in two years, meaning the search is on to find a new university president by 2018. It's been an interesting time under Hart, but what probably sealed her fate was when she took a side job to work for DeVry. From there, public outcry for her to be replaced has grown immensely, and now it's happening.
