The man who led the nation's third largest school district in the nation is coming to South Florida to lead the sixth largest school system.

Robert Runcie was named the new superintendent of Broward County Schools on Wednesday, outlasting a field of 47 applicants for the job.

Runcie is currently the chief of staff for Chicago Public Schools.

The Broward School Board held a final exam of sorts for the two finalists, Runcie and Bernard Taylor, before making their decision.

Taylor is the junior superintendent in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Runcie will replace James Notter, who retired as superintendent June 30.
