Pritchett Passed Over for Temple Gig

Nutter policy advisor Wendell Pritchett will not be leaving the administration. He was one of three finalists for the vacant Temple Law School deanship, but the university announced today that the job would go to JoAnne Epps.

Pritchett failed to wow faculty and students, who got the distinct impression during interviews that he didn't want the job all that much. Epps, presently the associate dean, was probably the odds-on favorite all along.
