The public historically black university in New Orleans, La. announced the decision Monday with an internal email that said the school will suspend all intercollegiate programs at the conclusion of the 2019-20 school year.

According to, SUNO Interim Chancellor Dr. James H. Ammons released a memo saying that the suspension is for “an unspecified period” of time. The memo also noted that 56 student-athletes, four head coaches and one assistant coach will be affected across the university’s five programs – men’s basketball, women’s basketball, men’s track and field, women’s track and field, and women’s volleyball.
