Republican Gov. Rick Snyder says no one has been chosen yet to replace outgoing Detroit schools emergency financial manager Robert Bobb.
Snyder told reporters Thursday that the search process is still under way and no decision is imminent.
He says he's "still looking at candidates both locally and nationally."
Citing people with knowledge of the situation that it didn't name, WDIV-TV reported Wednesday that Atwater Entertainment Associates President Vivian Carpenter would get the job. But Snyder's comments make her appointment appear unlikely.
Bobb was hired in March 2009 by then-Gov. Jennifer Granholm to fix the district's finances.
Snyder says he'd prefer to replace Bobb when his contract expires in June with someone from southeast Michigan, but adds he has "not made any decisions at all at this time."
