STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Florida State President Eric Barron will be the next president of Pennsylvania's largest university.

Penn State trustees unanimously approved the selection of Barron at a special meeting Monday in State College. Barron is a former professor and dean at Penn State.

He will be paid $800,000 a year, with an additional $200,000 retention payment. He will start in May and succeed Rodney Erickson, who is retiring.

Barron shocked FSU trustees Saturday by publicly talking about leaving the school in a newspaper interview in Florida.

He worked at Penn State for 20 years, including four as dean of its College of Earth and Mineral Sciences.

Barron's selection culminates a 15-month search process.
