BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Colorado State University's governing board is meeting Thursday to discuss who it will choose to lead the system, a position for which LSU Chancellor Mike Martin is being considered.

Martin told The Advocate (http://bit.ly/JYZnzo) that he will strongly consider the Colorado job if he is offered the position.

Colorado State University System spokesman Kyle Henley says the university's search committee has forwarded one candidate's name to the CSU System Board of Governors. The board plans a Thursday morning meeting via conference call to discuss that recommendation.

Henley wouldn't confirm whether Martin is the candidate recommended for the job.

If Martin is on his way out, it would be the LSU's second high-profile departure within a month. The LSU Board of Supervisors fired System President John Lombardi in April.
