TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -

Bryan F. Smith is returning to Florida A&M University, where he earned a master's degree, as the school's anti-hazing administrator.

   Interim university President Larry Robinson said on Friday that Smith's job will be to ensure initiatives adopted following the hazing death of a band member will be implemented.

   Drum major Robert Champion died in November 2011 after he was beaten aboard a band bus in Orlando.

   Smith most recently was executive director and co-founder of Destined for Success Educational Services in Decatur, Ga.

   He said his goal will be to change a hazing culture on the Tallahassee campus.

   Smith has a law degree from John Marshall Law School, a master's in public management from Florida A&M and a bachelor's in political science from North Carolina A&T State University.
