JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson State announced Thursday that they will suspend the men's and women's golf programs for 2 years.

The University is in the process of budget cuts and a hiring freeze. A JSU spokesman told WLBT that the golf teams are expected to return for the 2019-20 academic year. All golf scholarships will be honored by the athletic department.

According to the Associated Press, JSU will cut 42 non-faculty positions and plan to close a campus in Madison. The cuts will save $2 million.
