COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - The Texas A&M System Board of Regents is meeting to discuss issues relating to Texas A&M University and the Southeastern Conference (SEC) over the phone.

Chairman Tim Leach convened the meeting at 5:03 p.m., with all members of the Board of Regents present.

Before convening into executive session, Chairman Leach requested Chancellor John Sharp, Texas A&M University President Kathy Banks, Deputy Chancellor and Chief Financial Officer Billy Hamilton, Ray Bonilla and Brooks Moore from the system’s Office of General Counsel, Director of Athletics Ross Bjork, Vice Chancellor of Marketing and Communications Laylan Copelin and Board of Regents Executive Director Vickie Spillers join the executive session.

After meeting in executive session for about 90 minutes, the board took no action and decided to reconvene on Wednesday at 4 p.m. for another special session. This meeting will be in-person and streamed live here. The school says the board will immediately recess into executive session in that meeting the same way they did Monday.

Copelin says the nature of Monday’s meeting was just informational.
