Documents detail FAMU athletics triumphs, woes

TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- Florida A&M’s Board of Trustees will wait until its full meeting in March to discuss Athletic Director Milton Overton Jr.’s budget, though they’ve got an idea of where the department is going.

During a Wednesday teleconference of the board’s committees, Trustee Kelvin Lawson decided it would be better to wait until March 10, when the group meets again, to delve into Overton’s plans.

Lawson is the chairman of the Special Committee on Athletics. Overton was present for the teleconference, but did not speak.

The committee was given a 16-slide PowerPoint, which detailed some of last year's highlights. The presentation also highlighted things Overton plans to fix.

According to the presentation, the athletics department has earned 62 percent of its projected 2015-16 revenue ($5.55 million of its budgeted $8.6 million).
