TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The famed marching band of Florida A&M University may miss another year on the football field, continuing its indefinite suspension after a drum major died in a hazing ritual.

FAMU interim president Larry Robinson said Wednesday there is still no timeline on when The Marching 100 will return. The band has been suspended since November 2011, soon after Robert Champion died.

Robinson says the university has to make sure it has the right people in place before the band returns. FAMU is still looking for a new band director.

Robinson said the university must decide by May whether the band will participate in football games this fall.
