Texas A&M Athletics Director Ross Bjork discusses his view for the future. “Our Adidas contract goes until 2021. We could negotiate earlier before then if we needed to. I’ve got good connections and relationships with people at Adidas from my time at UCLA. We’re looking at it, and we’re having those conversations. The contract with the SEC and CBS goes through the end of the 2023 football season. Those conversations are happening at a very high level. It will have to be a significant change if anything happens early on that front. But our deal with Learfield has tremendous upside locally. With regards to scheduling going forward, we’re scheduled out through 2027. Past that point, that’s the likes of who we’re talking with for future games. But I do like that model of playing the bigger schools, in the bigger stadiums.” In regards to facilities: “Reed Arena needs premium seating, and it needs all of these things. After that, the whole corner with soccer, the old softball stadium and the old track, that entire area needs attention. Then Blue Bell Park needs some changes. I think there are a lot of things we can do around Kyle Field to make it even better. There will have to be a capital campaign, and we’ll have to see what our Aggies want.” – Billy Liucci, TexAgs, Read More
