PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Board of Regents will hold a special meeting in Phoenix to discuss University of Arizona presidential prospects and take possible action in the search process.

The regents on Tuesday also will discuss a five-year contract for Dave Heeke as the UA's vice president for athletics and director of athletics.
 
Heeke was hired Saturday to replace Greg Byrne, the athletic director since 2010 who last month became Alabama's new AD.
 
Heeke spent the last 11 years as athletic director at Central Michigan after 18 years in Oregon's athletic department.
 
UA President Ann Weaver Hart is serving out the remainder of her contract that expires in June 2018.
 
She has been the school's president since 2012 and says she'll remain at the helm until a replacement is named.
