TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State University is going to decide what to do next in its messy search for a new president.
    
A search committee is meeting on Wednesday. The committee is expected to vote on whether to resume a normal search to find a new leader.
    
FSU initially was planning on interviewing powerful Republican politician John Thrasher for the job and decide whether to offer him the position. But that interview is now being postponed after Supreme Court Chief Justice Ricky Polston stepped forward and applied for the job. Now the search committee is being asked to consider setting a new application deadline for all candidates.
    
The FSU faculty union, which has criticized the search, is calling on FSU officials to do a "reset" and start all over.
