SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Gov. Rick Perry isn’t saying whether he approves of the University of Texas at Austin president whose job was reported to be in jeopardy.

Perry said Tuesday that UT regents will decide the performance of Bill Powers, who recently criticized the board for freezing tuition at the state’s flagship campus for most students the next two years.

Asked whether he was satisfied with Powers, Perry said “I got a state to run” and added that he isn’t focused on one campus.

Perry did say the tuition freeze sent a “good message” about not raising college costs. He made the remarks while praising a $10,000 bachelor’s degree offered at Texas A&M University-San Antonio.

The UT system chancellor has denied that regents told him to fire Powers.
