UAB President Ray Watts has lost no confidence votes by two student governing bodies and the Faculty Senate this month, but he says he won’t resign. It doesn’t look like the Alabama System Board of Trustees will force him to either. Those votes were sparked by his announcement last month he’s ending UAB’s football, bowling and rifle programs. With such ill feelings about his handling of that decision, it does raise the question of how effective he’ll be in that position now. We talk about it in this week’s Magic City Marketplace.
