Andy Berg Headshot

Ohio State may be looking to renovate the school’s Woody Hayes Athletic Center where the Buckeye football team trains.

According to a report from Columbus Business First, which was picked up by ElevenWarriors.com, donors are considering a $7.8 million renovation of the facility’s east wing. That would mark the largest investment in the building since the $2.5 million renovation of the center’s locker rooms in 2014.

According to a school spokesman, donors will cover 90 percent of the project.

Pending approval, the renovations would start in March 2018, with completion slated somewhere around December.

The Woody Hayes Athletic Center opened in 1987, followed by a $21.5 million 53,000-square-foot expansion that began in 2005 and was completed in 2007. In total, the facility is comprised of 78,000 square feet of facilities, offices and meeting rooms.
