RALEIGH, N.C. — N.C. State Chancellor Marye Anne Fox put in a few hours this holiday weekend.

Fox sent a memo to the Board of Trustees Monday letting them know that she has decided not to be a candidate to run the University of Texas system.

"These are challenging times for public education and quality higher education requires strong leadership at both the campus and system levels," Fox said in the memo. "I am committed to N.C. State University and am honored to serve as its chancellor at a time when our momentum and aspirations remain strong."

The move would have taken Fox back to her home state.
