CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Former Gov. Dave Freudenthal says he has no interest in becoming the next president of the University of Wyoming.

Freudenthal tells the Associated Press that university trustees and others have asked him if he'd like to succeed current president Tom Buchanan, who plans to retire next summer.

Freudenthal served two terms as governor and has been out of office for almost two years now.

He teaches law at UW and is on the board of directors of St. Louis-based Arch Coal. He says he's busier than he'd like to be and this will be his last semester of teaching at UW.
