University of Alabama-Birmingham president Ray Watts announced on Dec. 2 that the university was shutting down its football program, effective immediately.

Since then, Watts has garnered no-confidence votes from UAB's faculty senate and student government, while drawing national criticism for the decision. It's also been announced that UAB will hire an independent board to review the Carr Report, which was cited by Watts in shutting down the Blazers' football team two months ago.

"No," Massaro said when asked if there will be a final decision on UAB's future within the league. "From what we were told last week, there won't be any kind of vote.

"This is a designed to be a listen meeting."
