UAB Faculty Senate to weigh no-confidence vote

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) The UAB Faculty Senate is considering taking a no-confidence vote on President Ray Watts in the wake of his decision to drop football.

Faculty Senate chair Chad Epps said members voted by two-thirds majority while in executive session Tuesday to submit two possible resolutions to faculty members and will reconvene in January after receiving feedback. Epps said the first resolution would "support athletics and require a transparent reassessment of all athletics." The second alternative would be a no-confidence vote in Watts.

"There's a lot of concern that the president didn't involve other constituents in the decision, and we want to make sure we don't do the same thing," Epps said. "We want to make sure we're very clear on where our constituents lie, and that is the faculty.
