Question of the Day
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky’s Board of Trustees has approved a $45 million football training center project that’s scheduled for completion in 2016.
The privately-funded facility will be built adjacent to Commonwealth Stadium and Nutter Field House, where the team practices in bad weather. Trustees on Friday approved the proposal, which moves on for authorization next month by the Council on Postsecondary Education and the Capital Projects and Bond Oversight Committee.
Wildcats coach Mark Stoops expressed happiness over the vote, saying in a statement that “this is an indication of the great commitment from our administration and our supporters.”
Nutter Training Facility, Kentucky’s current practice center located a short distance from the stadium, will be used for other sports upon completion of the new complex.
