U.S. Senator Ben Sasse is going to retire from the American Senate.
The Republican from Nebraska has been in the Senate since 2015.
He's also no slouch in the academic world, having obtained degrees from Harvard University, St. John's College, and Yale University.
That impressive academic credential list will set him up perfectly for his next endeavor:
Serving as the President of the University of Florida.
"The University of Florida is uniquely positioned to lead this country through an era of disruption," Sasse said of Tim Tebow's alma mater. The single biggest challenge our nation faces is the radical disruption of work. Technology is changing everything about where, when, why, what, and how Americans work and so it’s changing our homes, neighborhoods, and communities too."
"I have been pursued by wonderful institutions the past two years, but have resisted being named a finalist," Sasse said. "This time is different because the University of Florida is very different: I think Florida is the most interesting university in America right now."
The University of Florida was excited as well.
"Dr. Sasse currently serves as a U.S. Senator from Nebraska and is a former college president, highly accomplished scholar and nationally recognized authority on higher education," the school said. As a result, the school "unanimously recommended United States Senator Dr. Ben Sasse as the sole finalist to become the University of Florida’s 13th president."
