TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State officials say the composer of the music for the university's fight song has died. Tommie Wright was 95.

The university in an email to staff, faculty and students says Wright died Thursday after a short illness.

Wright joined the faculty as a music professor in 1949 and composed the music for the ''FSU Fight Song'' in 1950. He retired in 2008. Wright taught more than 58,000 students during his time at the university.

Florida State recognized Wright with an honorary doctorate in music in 2012. He filled a role as an ambassador for the FSU Alumni Association after retiring.

Wright is survived by his wife Rosalinda, who is the head of the foreign languages department at Tallahassee Community College.
