Friday's Approval Promps Search For ETSU Football Coach
East Tennessee State Universityís president claims he is doing his best in paving the way for the new football program. Brian Noland addressed the Faculty Senate about the process of establishing the program. Football has been considered for many years including discussions during the search for a new president back in 2011. The decision to pursue a football program was up to the students as they will pay the fees to finance the program and itís understood that the move would not affect money used for academic programs. Noland says that current athletic programs will not cease to accommodate football and three new womenís sports will also be added. A stadium location will be researched by a consultant upon fee approval on Friday which could include a partnership with the city. Fridayís Tennessee board of regents meeting will offer a full board vote. The new fee could generate two and a half million dollars for football the first year then 2.8 million per year after that. Upon approval a head coach would be sought and probably hired by May with a team on the field by fall 2015. (bg)
