CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- 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.
