Several days after James H. Ammons announced that he would resign as president in the wake of a hazing scandal at Florida A&M University, the university's board approved an agreement Monday under which Ammons will leave the job immediately, the Tampa Bay Times reported. Ammons has come in for intense criticism for his administration's actions (and perceived inaction) regarding the death of a member of the university's renowned marching band. Under the agreement between the board and Ammons, he will take a sabbatical and then return to the faculty.
