Poshard to step down as SIU president


Southern Illinois University president Glenn Poshard says he's stepping down.

Poshard says he'll retire next June after the upcoming school year.

His contract runs into 2015 and he just got a four-year contract extension several years ago.

Poshard has led the university since 2005. Before that he represented southern Illinois in congress and as a state senator.
