Future of FAMU president in question

FAMU's board of trustees will meet Thursday for a second day to talk about the death of a student band member.

It's possible the board could talk about University President James Ammons, but it's not clear if they'll do so.

A board that oversees Florida's public universities has started an investigation into whether school administrators did enough when hazing was brought to their attention.

Detectives say hazing played a role in the death of Robert Champion. He died aboard a band bus following a football game against rival Bethune-Cookman University.

The 26-year-old Champion was found unresponsive Nov. 19 on a bus parked outside an Orlando, Fla., hotel after the school's football game.

Four students have been dismissed from the University in connection to the incident.
