The search for a new University of Missouri chancellor continues.

After the University of Missouri's governing board held a closed meeting on Wednesday, UM system spokesperson John Fougere said there will not be an announcement made today regarding Brady Deaton's replacement. The governing board held a similar meeting this past Sunday evening.

General counsel Steve Owens is serving as the interim chancellor until university system president Tim Wolfe makes a new hire.

Deaton stepped down as the campus chancellor earlier this month. As previously reported, Fougere said the goal is to hire a new chancellor before the 2014 Fall semester.
