TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida A&M University is starting over in its search for a new director for its famed band.

FAMU officials on Wednesday announced they were unable to reach an agreement with the finalist for the job. University officials had planned to appoint Jorim Reid, the current band director at North Carolina Central University, to the position.

FAMU officials said that Reid and the university disagreed over the duties of the band director. The university changed the job following the hazing related death of drum major Robert Champion. The band director will no longer serve as chairman of the music department.

Interim President Larry Robinson said it was in the best interest of the university to start a new search instead of selecting one of the other remaining two finalists.
