AU Athletic Complex Renovations Close to Wrapping Up

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Renovations of Auburn's athletic complex enter their final phase this summer.

The upgrades are affecting everything from the downstairs locker rooms to the upstairs football coaches' offices and meeting rooms.

The football coaches and staffers are also getting technology improvements. Coach Tommy Tuberville says the wiring infrastructure
badly needed an upgrade for the type of Internet and video capabilities that coaches need.

The players changed and showered in the indoor football complex during spring practice while the Tigers' main locker room was being renovated.

Tuberville says the rewards will outweigh the inconvenience.

He said the locker room will be finished long before fall practice begins.
