Florida A&M to Cut Two Men’s Sports

Florida A&M University is reportedly planning to cut two men’s sports programs in order to save the costs related to staffing and operating expenses. 

Tallahassee ABC affiliate WTXL reports that the school has not yet decided which sports will be cut, but those most likely to be on the chopping block are indoor/outdoor track and field, tennis, and golf. 

The move is part of the university’s plan to reduce the athletic department’s projected $2.4 million budget deficit. Cutting the programs could net the school as much as $800,000 in savings.

Athletic director John Eason will make the final decision on which programs to cut, and a decision is expected to arrive before Thanksgiving. Any cuts will take effect for the 2020-2021 season.
