A source close to the decision tells Action News Education Reporter Linda Mumma, that the offer was made and accepted by the candidate Tuesday night. The source also says that the next president is "no stranger to the Central Valley."

We have also learned that 60 people applied to the job, and three candidates were in Long Beach on Monday for a formal interview.

The announcement and official introduction of the new president will take place Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. at the CSU chancellor's office in Long Beach.

We'll have more information on later editions of Action News.
