SAN ANTONIO -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he was not surprised by the sudden resignation of Texas A&M president Elsa Murano.

Perry says he considers it part of his job to stay in the loop about university administrators but that he has faith in the board
of regents to make the right decisions.

The regents are meeting in College Station to discuss the A&M presidency on Monday afternoon.

Murano announced her resignation Sunday, less than a year and a half after she became the first Hispanic and first female president in the school's 132-year history.

Perry says Murano served the school well.
