TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida A&M University President James Ammons has received a no-confidence vote from the school's board of trustees because of his handling of the hazing death of a band drum major.

The board voted 8 to 4 Thursday to approve the no-confidence measure. Ammons won't quit and said he would fix any problems.

The school has been reeling since the November death of drum major Robert Champion. Eleven members of the school's Marching 100 band have been charged with felony hazing for allegedly beating him to death. The death exposed a wide culture of hazing at the school. Critics say Ammons and other administrators ignored it.

Ammons became president in 2007 following a budget scandal that threatened the school's accreditation. He signed a five-year contract extension last year.
