AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – It’s official: Navy Adm. William McRaven will be the next chancellor of the University of Texas System.

McRaven on Thursday made his first public appearance in Austin since the head of the U.S. Special Operations Command was first rumored as a candidate. He wore a suit – and not his Naval uniform – while briefly addressing regents after they confirmed his appointment.

McRaven starts in January. System officials say he will make $1.2 million a year – nearly a half-million dollars more than his predecessor.

The 58-year-old McRaven has been credited with spearheading the operation that led to the death of Osama bin Laden in a raid on his compound in 2011.

McRaven replaces Francisco Cigarroa, who is stepping down after five years.
