University of Alabama trustees are gathering in Tuscaloosa to discuss a new president following Guy Bailey's resignation after less than two months in office.

Board pro tem Paul Bryant Jr. says members will discuss presidential succession at a meeting on Thursday.

Bailey announced his resignation on Wednesday, saying it was due to the health of wife Jan Tillery-Bailey.

A statement didn't reveal anything about her condition, but a university spokeswoman says Bailey's wife was critically ill over the summer.
