I read that this search was cancelled until next year. Anyone know why?

They invited 3 candidates and felt that none of them was a good fit for their department. They cancelled the search instead of dipping back into the applicant pool…
wow…I would have been so mad if I had applied for that job and not been invited for an interview. It wasn't my area, but still…to not dip into the pool…wow.
They made an offer to at least one individual. The person turned them down.
btw…looks like they've done this exact same thing 2 yrs in a row. A friend of mine interviewed there last year and he was told that they are looking for someone who "would be competitive at a top tier research institution" (even though they are not a top tier R1). Seems like they have some illusions of grandeur.
