Gophers athletic director Norwood Teague has made facilities upgrades a major priority. A basketball practice facility is at the top of his list for an expanded Bierman Athletic Complex, but here are other upgrades he hopes to include in a model that should be released in coming months:
A new football building: The Gophers' indoor football practice facility and associated areas inside the complex are among the worst in the Big Ten.
A women's gymnastics facility: The Gophers practice in Peik Gym, on campus but several blocks from the athletic complex.
A wrestling facility: The wrestling room in Bierman is subpar, particularly when contrasted with the palaces at programs such as Penn State.
Office enhancements: Space is at a premium, and many coaches work in cramped conditions.
A center for student-athlete academics and dining: The current academic center can't accommodate very many athletes. The football team essentially holds its post-practice training table in a lobby.
