Auburn University trustees say Alabama State school superintendent Ed Richardson will be named interim president at Auburn University, replacing William Walker who resigned on Friday.

Walker had been under fire for his handling of a search for a new football coach. Walker says he hopes his resignation will give Auburn a fresh start.

This comes just two days after Walker met with Gov. Bob Riley to discuss problems facing the University.

Gov. Riley is expected to meet with Auburn's Board of Trustees on Monday to discuss the future of Auburn's leadership.
