Texas Tech football is hoping to move ahead with a $200 million stadium revitalization that will include a new four-story building in the south end zone that will include locker rooms, offices for coaches and a field-level club area.
According to ESPN, the new building will enclose the south end of Jones AT&T Stadium and connect by a skybridge to the school's sports performance center and forthcoming two-story Womble Football Center.
"It'll be as great of a layout as you will see in college football, with the practice field location, the adjacency of the indoor practice facility and then the connection to the stadium," Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt said.
The project includes a slightly larger replacement of the stadium's Double T scoreboard. The original was installed in 1978.
"We couldn't be more excited for the future of our football program and what this facility will do in terms of player development and recruiting," coach Joey McGuire said.
The project will be largely funded through private fundraising and annual athletic department revenue stream, including the sale of new premium seating.
Texas Tech regents will have to approve the project at their meeting next month, and groundbreaking would be planned for after the 2022 season, with completion slated for 2024.
