WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Purdue University’s Board of Trustees is expected to approve a $60 million expansion of the school’s football training facilities.

The (Lafayette) Journal and Courier (https://on.jconline.com/1NWXPXW ) reports that the board likely will approve the project, which is called the Purdue Football Performance Complex, during a meeting Saturday after discussions Friday.

A new facility will be built north of the existing Mollenkopf Athletic Center and will connect with the outdoor practice fields. Construction is expected to begin in May and end in August 2017.

The project is designed to upgrade the football program’s out-of-date facilities and make them contemporary with the school’s peers across the country.

The program’s training facilities haven’t seen a major upgrade in more than 25 years.
