Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) is a candidate to be the next president of Purdue University, WISH-TV reported Tuesday.
The school's board of trustees is set to vote Thursday morning on their nominee to succeed current President France Cordova, who is retiring next month after five years in the position.
Daniels' office did not comment on the report, which comes months after Daniels announced that he would not seek the Republican nomination for U.S. president.
The Purdue board vote will be broadcast live on the university's website Thursday, and the president-elect will be introduced afterward, according to a news release from the school.
Daniels made headlines earlier this year when he delivered the Republican response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address.
