UF President Machen Announces Retirement
University of Florida President Bernie Machen announced Friday that he would retire by the end of 2013.
Machen told the UF Board of Trustees he would remain until the search was complete.
That process would start next month and likely take six months to a year.
Machen and his wife, Chris, will have been at the university for nearly a decade by the end of 2013.
Machen, 68, has served as UF president since January 2004.
He laid the groundwork for his departure last year, when trustees extended his contract to the end of 2013.
The contract does allow both sides to mutually end the deal at any time that year without penalty.
