Florida A&M University's governing board is holding an emergency meeting to discuss the resignation of school president James Ammons.

The FAMU board plans to meet for three hours on Monday where it will discuss the resignation and finding a successor.

One key decision could be whether or not Ammons is allowed to remain in control, even though his resignation does not take effect until Oct. 11.

Ammons abruptly resigned last week despite surviving a no-confidence vote from FAMU trustees back in June.

Ammons has been under fire in the wake of the hazing death of drum major Robert Champion. Trustees have complained about lack of oversight of the famed Marching 100 band as well as lax management on other issues at the university.
