Last week, we reported that Arun Sarin was showing strong interest in Yahoo’s now-available CEO position, and this morning we reported that private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts has asked him to join as a partner. Now what’s the word? The Financial Times says the former *Vodafone* chief is no longer interested in succeeding Jerry Yang, partly because of the possibility of Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO) being dismembered.
