ETSU president: Football team to be considered

Posted:

JOHNSON CITY (AP) - The president of East Tennessee State University says the school might begin a football program.

The Johnson City Press reported university President Brian Noland said intercollegiate football was among recommendations of committees who looked at the school's future.

Others to be considered are opening a dental school and building a performing arts center.

Noland said as the recommendations are discussed, ETSU will gauge community support as well as campus reaction.

In discussing the recommendations Wednesday, Noland said a football program would have to be created, not restarted.

ETSU ended its previous football program at the end of the 2003 season. It was losing $1 million per year.
