LINCOLN, Neb. — When Gov. Dave Heineman scheduled a news conference on Wednesday, his staff sent out the usual media release notifying reporters that it would be about “education issues.”

But rather than talking about K-12 funding or a higher education initiative, the governor announced that he had decided to apply for a job — as president of the University of Nebraska.
