JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- University of North Florida President John Delaney says he has no interest in applying for the same position at the University of Florida.

Delaney's name is surfacing following the current UF President Bernie Machem's decision to retire at the end of next year.

The former Jacksonville mayor has been at the helm at UNF since July of 2003.

Delaney, in a prepared statement, noted that nine members of his family went to UF, including himself.

"One's alma mater always has a draw," said Delaney.

"I am a Jacksonville guy, and a UNF guy ... I plan on staying put and have no intention of applying," he said.
