ASU Searches for Finance VP Replacement

An Angelo State University press release took a circuitous route in announcing the resignation of Finance Vice President Michael Reid:

Angelo State University President Brian J. May has appointed a nine-member search committee to make recommendations for a new vice president for finance and administration to succeed Michael L. Reid, who has resigned, effective March 15
The release eventually got to Reid's reason for leaving.

Reid announced his resignation earlier this month to accept a position as vice president for administration and finance at the University of Montana in Missoula.

Apparently that announcement wasn't press release worthy. .Reid will join James Limbaugh in Big Sky country.  Limbaugh is Chancellor for Montana State University-Northern in Havre, Montana. 

I searched the Standard Times and found no article on Reid's resignation.  Concho Valley Homepage ran a news clip on January 7.  Reid started at ASU on March 1, 2011.  He resigned after 22 months on the job.  Given it takes months to land a job like the one at the University of Montana, when did he start looking?

"i can say that without a doubt that ASU is second to none of them, it is truly a pinnacle institution and one that I'm sure I will look back on during my career and be proud that i was a part of ASU, it doesn't need to apologize to anyone, it is an institution that's got everything."

Except Michael Reid as VP Finance come March 15..
