Coastal Carolina’s Board of Trustees recently approved the erection of a new multi-million dollar football complex.
The proposed facility would be located across from University Boulevard near Brooks Stadium.
According to Chief Financial Officer David Frost, these plans have been a longtime coming saying “Moving University Boulevard to the other side has been in the works … been on the master plan for a long time.”
The purpose of the facility would be to house an indoor practice facility for the Coastal Carolina University football team. The 78,000 square-foot facility is expected to cost around $15 million to erect but would be fully funded by donors.
The vote took place on May 6th – however, the Coastal Educational Fund must approve the proposed facility before construction can begin.
In addition to the proposed football facility, the university’s Board of Trustees also voted to put $300,000 in CARES Act funds towards helping students get the COVID-19 vaccine, while still maintaining the cost of tuition and room and board.
