Marshall approves plans for an indoor facility

During a meeting yesterday, Marshall's Board of Governors gave the green light to begin construction on a new indoor athletic facility that will house a 120 yard turf field as well as a track, a new hall of fame and student-athlete activity center.

The total price tag for the facility is about $30 million dollars, with $15 million already accounted for in private donations.

Head coach Doc Holliday is pretty stoked about the new addition and what it will allow them to do in terms of recruiting and game prep.

"It's huge. Give [athletic director] Mike Hamrick an awful lot of credit" Holliday told WVGazette.com. "For him to get done what he's gotten done in economic conditions that are out there throughout the state, throughout the country, it's an amazing accomplishment."

"Can't turn back now. The shovel's going in the ground on Friday, I guess, and once it starts we can't turn back, which is great. It will be tremendous for our recruiting, us being able to work out in the winter, prepare for bowls, that type of thing."
