     WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — The chairman of Purdue University’s Board of Trustees says he sought out Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels to consider becoming the school’s new president after Daniels decided to not seek the Republican presidential nomination.
    Trustees chairman Keith Krach called Daniels a distinguished leader who’ll be world-class ambassador for Purdue around the country and the globe.
    Krach spoke after the trustees voted unanimously to name Daniels as Purdue’s new president.
    Daniels will take the helm at Purdue after his term as governor ends in January.
    Krach says Purdue provost Timothy Sands will be the school’s interim president after current president France Cordova retires next month.
