BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The board of the Southern University voted on Saturday morning not to extend President Ron Mason's contract. It's set to expire June 2015.

The vote was 9 to 4 to release Mason at the end of his contract, though he said he would not have accepted an extension anyway. There were several faculty members and at least one board member who called for Mason's immediate resignation.

Mason could remain on campus after his term as president ends.

His contract guarantees a tenured teaching position at Southern's Law Center.
