The University of Miami has steadily upgraded the Athletic facilities in recent years. However, a major missing piece could be coming to fruition soon.
As reported by Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Miami could be VERY CLOSE to announcing a donation to fund the construction of an Indoor Practice Facility
Told that UM said at Board of Trustees meeting today that they are within hair of announcing gift to build indoor football practice facility— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) May 13, 2016
... So barring a donor backing out at last minute, Mark Richt's priority of getting indoor football practice facility looks close to reality— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) May 13, 2016
New Canes coach Mark Richt has repeatedly stated that getting an IPF was his "#1 priority". And, if this donation goes through (which it seemingly will) that will go from being a fantasy to a reality.
Much has been made of the fact that Miami is the only P5 school without an IPF or plans to build one. But, with a new staff and a renewed sense of direction for the program, that may soon change.
Mark Richt is already proving to be a man who gets things done.
Now, let's get on the field and win games, too.
More on this soon? We'll see.
