MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University’s athletic facilities plan includes improvements at the Coliseum and Milan Puskar Stadium

All told, the athletic department is looking at projects totaling $106 million.

Mike Szul is senior associate athletic director for business operations. He said the plan calls for renovations at the stadium that would update the concourse, create new entrances at both end zones and make the stadium fully handicapped accessible.

Also under consideration are adding covered, club-type seating at the stadium. The price of those seats could help offset their costs.

The Dominion Post (http://bit.ly/1mffvOr ) reports that the Board of Governors’ Finance Committee heard about the plan on Friday. The full board will vote on the plan and funding during its meeting on April 4.
