Former attorney general Martha Coakley said she is not a candidate for president of Suffolk University, according to The Boston Globe.
“I would like to clarify that I am not a candidate for the role of president of Suffolk University nor will I be and I look forward to continuing my law practice at Foley Hoag,’’ she said in a statement.
The university’s trustees, who have been weary of current president Margaret McKenna’s leadership style and spending, reportedly were in discussions with Coakley about taking the job, the Globe reported.
Coakley’s statement was her first public comment on the situation since the rumor of her recruitment first circulated on Friday.
