Wave Of The Future: Tulane AD Determined To Build On-Campus Football Stadium
Published July 19, 2011
WORK IN PROGRESS: Univ. of Alabama-Birmingham Associate VP/PR & Marketing Dale Turnbough said that “work on the feasibility study for an on-campus football stadium at UAB has yet to be completed.” A UAB Facilities Division Major Capital Projects report indicated that the feasibility study “had been completed under the direction” of UAB AD Brian Mackin and VP/Financial Affairs & Administration Richard Margison. But Turnbough said that “the feasibility study ‘is still a work in progress’ and has not been presented to school President Carol Garrison.” Turnbough added that “no firm date has been set to approach the board about the possibility of building an on-campus football stadium” (BIRMINGHAM NEWS, 7/17).
