Alabama State University's board of trustees will meet Friday to consider the fate of embattled president Joseph Silver.
The Montgomery Advertiser reported the developments after it obtained an email sent from one trustee to the board chairman.
Silver has been on leave since Nov. 26, when the executive committee of the board took that action in an emergency meeting.
Immediately following that meeting, Silver claimed he was being punished for questioning several contracts currently in place at ASU that didn't benefit the school.
