(Reuters) - The University of Texas said Tuesday its Board of Regents picked U.S. Admiral William McRaven as sole finalist for the position of chancellor, passing up Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Richard Fisher who was also reported to have been a candidate. The university made the announcement on its official Twitter feed after its Board of Regents met in Austin. He is retiring from his military post this summer and would succeed current UT Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa who announced his retirement earlier this year. He has made no public comment on his plans after the Fed. Fisher's predecessor at the Dallas Fed, Robert McTeer, left the bank in 2004 to be chancellor of the Texas A&M University system.
