ORLANDO, Fla. – The future of Florida A&M University’s president is in question as authorities investigate whether hazing played a role in the death of a member of the school’s famed marching band.

The school’s board of trustees planned to meet Thursday for a second day to talk about the death. It is possible the board could talk about University President James Ammons, but it’s not clear whether they will 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.

Ammons dodged several questions about his fate.

“I haven’t had much time to think about myself,” said Ammons, who became president of his alma mater in July 2007. “At this minute, I’m still the president of the university. But we’ll wait and see what the determination of the board is.”
