TULSA, OK -- Oral Roberts University could have a new president next week.

In the past year ORU has had scandal, layoffs and been without a permanent president, but the board of trustees is to meet Wednesday and vote on hiring Mark Rutland as head of the school.

Rutland is currently president of Southeastern University in Florida and if approved he would succeed televangelist Richard Roberts as ORU president.

Roberts resigned in in late 2007 after he and his wife were accused of spending school money to support a luxurious lifestyle.

Roberts denies the allegation.
