North Texas athletic director Wren Baker will present a master plan for athletic facilities to the school’s board of regents during the group’s regularly scheduled meetings this week. Those plans include construction of an indoor practice facility. UNT officials prioritized the venue shortly after Baker took over the program in the summer of 2016. The 94,000-square foot venue will include a full length football field, a three-land track and support spaces. The facility is set to be built near the Mean Green Athletic Center at a cost of $18.9 million. A total $7.5 million in gifts is expected to go toward construction that is slated to be completed in July of 2019. UNT’s indoor facility is a key component of the school’s overall facilities master plan and is included on the list of short-term priorities. The plan also includes mid-term and long-term goals. Baker set a goal to come up with a comprehensive plan to improve what UNT has to work with in terms of facilities after evaluating what the program has to work with shortly after becoming the school’s athletic director. -Brett Vito, Denton Record-Chronicle, Read More
