FAMU AD Overton: Budget cuts about 'right-sizing'

TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- Florida A&M Athletic Director Milton Overton Jr. is looking to balance the budget of a cash-strapped athletic department. That means for the second year in a row, cuts are part of that equation.

Overton recently told coaches another 10 percent will be sliced from the athletic department’s budget, on top of a 10-percent cut from the previous year.

Overton told the Tallahassee Democrat in an interview after FAMU’s spring game he’s “right-sizing” FAMU’s budget.

He said in the end, he’s making FAMU’s spending more efficient and making choices that will benefit the department in the long run.

“I’ve done that every year I’ve been here,” Overton said.
