TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -

Florida A&M University has announced it will suspend the men's golf and men's tennis programs to keep in line with Title IX requirements.
    
Athletic director Kellen Winslow says the university did not want to suspend the teams, but must due to the athletic department's "fiscal situation."
    
The school suspended its men's and women's swimming and diving teams in 2012.
    
Student-athletes on the golf and tennis teams will remain on scholarship for the 2014-15 school year.
    
The university now has 14 teams - the minimum required to remain in Division I - with six men's teams and eight women's teams.
