MEMPHIS, TN (NBC) - The University of Memphis Board of Trustees approved funding for a new football practice facility.
The facility will be located on the Park Avenue campus and will include a practice field, dining area, and football operations office.
The board also approved ground and utility preparation work for the facility.
The school broke ground on the 76,000-square foot facility in April. The project is part of the U of M's $40 million 'Time to Shine' campaign, which also includes a new 58,000-square foot basketball facility, which is already under construction.
Athletic Director Tom Bowen said the project will be completed in 13 to 19 months.
