Things are getting bigger in Texas. Today the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents approved $16 million of renovations
to the Aggies' Bright Football Complex that include the locker room, athletic training facilities, meeting rooms and coaches’ offices.
“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.”
The renovation will be funded entirely through gift funds from the 12th Man Foundation. Construction is expected to begin as soon as possible, with an anticipated first-floor completion date of fall 2014. The third floor, which primarily includes the coaches’ offices, is scheduled to be complete by summer 2015.
