CU Unveils $170M Plan To Upgrade Facilities

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – The University of Colorado presented a $170 million proposal to upgrade the Buffaloes’ football facilities to the board of regents at its monthly meeting Wednesday.

The university would rely on $50 million in private money to finance the multi-year initiative.

Athletic director Mike Bohn told the board the proposal would “position us to attract the best student-athletes in the nation” improve their performance on the field and in the classroom and enhance fans’ experience at games in Boulder.

The project, unveiled by Bohn, Chancellor Phil DiStefano and new football coach Mike MacIntyre, includes a new academic center and expansion of the Dal Ward Center along with a new indoor practice facility and upgrades to Folsom Field.
