Temple's Board of Directors approve E-O expansion

Temple’s Board of Directors approved a $9 million expansion and renovations to Edberg-Olson Hall, the football team’s practice facility on Tuesday.

This expansion had been in the works for some time.  The school just wanted to raise $2 million in private money to start the project.

 “The weight room is going from to 2,500 square feet to 10,000,” a source told the Inquirer in August. “The training room is going to quadruple with state-of-the-art rehab equipment for the players. They are putting in a new academic center upstairs and a whole new team room upstairs for recruiting, team functions and alumni functions.”
