Jerry Yang, Yahoo’s co-founder and CEO, is down for the count. Yahoo! is actively searching for a new CEO, and Yang is likely to be forever linked to the Microsoft deal gone bad – when Microsoft offered $31 per share in February, and Yahoo’s refusal led to Carl Ichan’s successful proxy fight. Given that Yahoo! recently closed at $10.63, that $31 must be looking pretty good.

It’s likely not all Yang’s fault, but massive layoffs, plummeting stock prices, losing traction in search and Internet marketing, and Google’s pullout from a joint deal don’t bode well for the company.

Several names are being floated to replace Yang, including Meg Whitman (former CEO of eBay) and Jon Miller (previously with AOL). We’ll watch with interest as it plays out.
