Texas A&M regents have approved a $16 million project for football renovations. The upgrades will include the football locker room, athletic training facilities, meeting rooms and coaches’ offices. Here is the statement from their Athletic Director:
“We appreciate the support of the Board of Regents, University administration and Aggies everywhere,” Texas A&M Director of Athletics Eric Hymansaid in a statement. “The sincere commitment to excellence from everyone associated with Texas A&M is apparent. This project will continue to help us recruit outstanding student-athletes, as well as provide a first-class experience for our current student-athletes and coaches.”
In case you forgot, A&M is still in the middle of $450 million dollars worth of renovations. They will probably say they needed to do this to keep up with the other SEC programs. The money will come from the 12th Man Fund.
This is another example of “no money” being in College Athletics for the players though.
