Miami getting $5 million for facilities

Miami’s athletic department has received a $5 million gift for

facility upgrades, the largest single donation ever made to support

Hurricane programs.

The gift from the Ted & Todd Schwartz Family Foundation will

help provide a new academic center for student-athletes, a larger

sports medicine facility for the university’s teams, a new football

locker room and a gallery of champions. The deal is scheduled to be

announced Friday.

Preliminary details obtained by The Associated Press show the

total cost of the project is planned at $13.6 million, of which

$10.5 million had already been raised.
