ETSU football motion gets passed
Student Government Association voted today to approve a resolution of support for restarting the football program at East Tennessee State University.
After one hour of discussion, the resolution went to a vote. With a majority vote of 22-5 with one abstention, the SGA senate approved the resolution.
The resolution, SSR 13-015, now calls for ETSU President Brian Noland to move forward with the support of students in the endeavor of developing a football program.
The piece of legislation indicates a $125 per semester increase in student fees will be the source of funding for the development of the football program.
This was just part of the process, according to Richard Sander, director of Intercollegiate Athletics.
"It's exciting, the students ... spent a lot of time and energy and did a great job at researching the issue," Sander said.
