DESTIN, Florida — Florida is still developing its master plan for facilities, but athletics director Jeremy Foley said it is “a high agenda item” six months into the process.
The question is what will be the next big thing for the football program, which opened a $17 million indoor practice facility in August. A separate football facility has certainly been suggested, but coach Jim McElwain and Foley have not discussed particulars publicly.
“I’m trying to figure that out,” Foley said at the SEC’s spring meetings Wednesday. “Trying to figure out again exactly what coach Mac needs. Certainly there’s some team area needs. There’s a lot of things we want to do there but I want to get the master plan in and see what works. Doing something for football is the highest thing on our agenda. Doing something for softball is right up there with it. Obviously there are some things we need to do with baseball, too.”
It doesn’t appear plans will be released any time soon. “We’ll look at that over the course of the summer,” Foley said.
