Michigan provides look into $250-million athletic facilities project
Michigan has provided the first snapshot of its $250-million plan to renovate the school's athletic facilities.
The Wolverines launched a new website for their athletic development, and released pictures and other information for its plan.
Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said earlier this year a master plan has been drafted that calls for renovations to nearly every athletic facility on campus in the next seven to 10 years.
Brandon said he hopes the project will make Michigan eligible to host postseason games and tournaments in every sport.
"We’ve really taken our entire campus footprint and said, ‘What do we need to do to get all of our facilities lifted to a point where we really feel we would be competitive with any other campus location for a national tournament,’' Brandon said in the summer.
"So, our standard would be to have facilities in every sport that would make us eligible as a site for regional or national competition."
Brandon said some of Michigan's athletic facilities are "just not adequate."
