SAN JOSE, CALIF. (AP) - The Oakland Athletics, along with the MLS San Jose Earthquakes, have selected an architect to design the teams’ proposed privately funded stadiums.

While the San Francisco Giants hold the territorial rights to San Jose, Commissioner Bud Selig could soon make recommendations on how to proceed.

He formed a committee to study the issue and has regularly said the run-down Oakland Coliseum isn’t a viable long-term option for the small-market A’s.

A’s and Earthquakes owner Lew Wolff announced Tuesday that 360 Architecture had been selected for the projects. The company handled the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., the home of the Jets and Giants.

Team spokesman Bob Rose says the A’s have no estimate of the size or cost of the new stadium if they’re allowed to move.
