TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (970 WFLA/ AP)- Florida A&M University is hiring a compliance officer for its music department.
The university announced Monday that Deirdre Mcroy will start her new job on May 13. She was a research associate in the university's retention office. It will be Mcroy's job to make sure students in the music department follow the rules. FAMU put in strict new requirements amid the fallout over the hazing-related death of drum major Robert Champion.
The marching 100 has been suspended since Champion's death in November 2011.
Interim president Larry Robinson has said he will decide this month whether the band will be back on the field during the 2013 football season.
The band is still without a director although Robinson said Monday that the school will announce a new director ``very soon.''
