Auburn interim AD provides update on new football facility, timeframe for move-in
Auburn broke ground on a new football-only facility several years ago. The price tag is nearly $92 million, with the building set to host the program’s operating staff, a practice facility, and other perks including a barber shop, a pair of recording studios, and a flight simulator, of all things.
The Football Performance was set to be finished in July but has run into delays. But it sounds like the debut is just weeks away, according to Auburn interim athletic director Rich McGlynn.
Appearing on the “Tiger Talk” radio show on Thursday, McGlynn provided an update on the progress of the facility. An unveiling is set for “around Nov. 10 or so”, while players will be permitted access starting “sometime in December”, he said, according to AL.com’s Tom Green.
Rich McGlynn says they're "probably a couple weeks out" from finishing up the new football facility.
They're going to do some unveiling around Nov. 10 or so, and the football team will move in sometime in December.
