BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Billings businessman has signed a $1.5 million bequest to the University of Montana for athletic facility improvements.

Jim Hilleboe is a 1967 graduate of UM.

University of Montana Assistant Athletic Director for Development Dan Ingram says the money will be available after Hilleboe’s death to be used for whatever facilities the athletic department needs at that time.

Current facility needs include a new softball complex, a new weight room and a football locker room.

The 69-year-old Hilleboe founded Hilleboe Construction in Billings.
