YOUR THREE CENTS: Do you support a football program at UWF?
ESCAMBIA COUNTY -- The University of West Florida will field a football team, starting in 2016.
After years of discussion.... UWF President Judy Bense announced today the school will field a Division 2 team... to play in the Gulf South Conference.
The search for a coach will begin later this year.
The plans right now do not call for a new stadium on campus.
The school will find another field in the area to play on.
But the school will need practice facilities, locker-room, and coaches offices.
A group called the 'Football Founders Club' will be responsible for raising money for that.
Bense says there will be no new fees or tuition hikes to pay for those facilities.
She will present her plan to the school's board of trustees later this month.
