Norm Coleman, former Minnesota senator, will be fellow at Harvard

WASHINGTON - Former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman is headed back to school.

The Harvard Institute of Politics said Thursday that Coleman will serve as a visiting fellow for its fall 2009 semester. The announcement is the first indication of Coleman's plans after narrowly losing his Senate seat to Democrat Al Franken.

Visiting fellows meet with student groups at Harvard, lead discussions on issues and share their experiences with students. They also participate in public policy classes.

Coleman conceded the Senate race to Franken in June after a protracted recount fight.

After Minnesota's Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty said he would not seek a third term, Coleman was rumored to be interested. But Coleman recently announced he wouldn't make a decision on the race until next spring.
