Another positive for the resurging UAB football program came through Friday. Just a couple days after signing its first recruiting class after the program got axed a little over a year ago, the university announced funding had been approved for a $15 million football facility on campus.
The 46,000-square foot facility will include updated locker rooms, administrative offices weight rooms and more to allow for the operation of a steady football program. Before being shut down in December 2014, the program never got this kind of support.
UAB head coach Bill Clark has weathered the turbulent times, but has a positive view of the future saying, “It’s just confirmation of where we’ve already been headed.”
