FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WTVF) — He leads one of the biggest school districts in Tennessee and now he's considering leaving the state.

Williamson County's Mike Looney is considering a position in Fulton County, Georgia near Atlanta.

Fulton County School announced Dr. Looney as a semi-finalist in their search for a superintendent in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

The school board tells us if he accepts the position-- they will name an interim superintendent at the board meeting in May.

"On behalf of the Williamson County Board of Education, I want to thank Dr. Looney for his service to Williamson County Schools and wish him the best in his next endeavor. Should Dr. Looney sign a contract with Fulton County Schools on May 2, the WCS Board, at its regular May meeting, plans to name an interim superintendent and establish the effective date of that leadership transition."

Looney has led Williamson County Schools for nine years.
