With less than two months before the start of the 2015 season, first-year head coach Alex Wood is not under contract at Florida A&M, according to a report.
The Tallahassee Democract reported Tuesday that Wood, who was hired by FAMU on Dec. 23, has yet to sign a contract with the university.
Wood originally signed a contract around the time of FAMU’s annual Orange and Green Game, but the contract was not approved by the Board of Trustees. His revised contract is a three-year deal worth $200,000 annually and has incentives built in, Lawson said.
The trustees and FAMU President Elmira Mangum sparred over the language of the contract during a June meeting. Mangum said she saw no issues with the contract, while the board requested the revision of a provision that allows the university to fire a coach with 60 days of notice.
“We took a step to try and make the contract more favorable to (Wood),” Lawson said
School officials assured that there would not be any issues with Wood’s contract during the season.
