Michigan State planning football building upgrades

Michigan State is taking steps to continue improving the football program for years to come. The university’s board of trustees has approved the authorization to form plans that include $5 million to be budgeted for the Daugherty Football Building at Michigan State.

The plan is part of a $33 million project to improve athletic facilities, with the majority of the money being used to upgrade Michigan State’s basketball arena, the Breslin Center. The funds for the basketball arena upgrades will come from the school’s general fund, according to MLive.com, but the money for the football building upgrades is expected to come through donations to the university and athletics department.

New medical equipment and locker rooms will account for the focus of the football building upgrades. As MLive.com reports, Michigan State has not updated the building since 1997 and has become dated compared to other facilities found around the Big Ten. Now that Michigan State has proven to be a Big Ten championship-caliber program, giving the program an environment worthy of a championship program was an obvious move.

The plans still need to be finalized but that should be little more than a matter of procedure at this point.
