Thanks But No Thanks: Ex-Vodafone Head Not Interested In Yahoo CEO Post After All

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. Sarin is instead exploring other options, such as the post with KKR. Peter Chernin, president and COO of *News Corp.*, expressed disinterest earlier this month and is still working out his contract with News, which is set to expire in June. Whose name will be floated next?
