MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY

While pointing to changes along the Lake Michigan shoreline, Mark Dantonio quietly hinted at things that could be in Michigan State’s future. As in improved football facilities. Alan Haller, MSU’s deputy athletic director, told the Free Press on Thursday that he and Dantonio were part of meetings last week to discuss planning for upgrades to help the program, in the short- and long-term. It is unclear what the more significant long-term plans might look like, but the university’s Infrastructure and Planning and Facilities website has a $6.7 million project for the Skandalaris Football Center and Duffy Daugherty Football Building in the planning and design phase. It is to be funded by “gifts to Intercollegiate Athletics or debt financing with debt repayment from gifts to Intercollegiate Athletics.” Dantonio said in July that he visited Clemson with athletic director Bill Beekman and other MSU athletic department and fundraising officials to tour the Tigers’ new $55 million football facility that opened in January. Work is underway on an $18.8 million upgrade to MSU’s hockey home, Munn Ice Arena. Other recent athletic updates included lights for the baseball, softball and soccer venues on Old College Field and the Izzo Hall of History at Breslin Center. – Chris Solari, Detroit Free Press, Read More
