Miami (Fla.) announces plans for new indoor practice facility

Miami (Fla.) will be the latest football program to see major improvements in its facilities, as the Hurricanes announced their plans Friday for the Carol Soffer Football Indoor Practice Facility.

The facility will span 81,800 square feet and will include two outdoor turf practice fields that connect to the indoor portion that includes its strength and conditioning center.

A 20,000-square-foot football operations center will house the coaches’ offices that will overlook the indoor fields from above as part of the design. It will also boast six position meeting rooms, a head coach’s suite, three coaches’ conference rooms, a first-class football recruiting suite complete with lounges and meeting rooms and a state-of-the-art video center, per the university's press release
