Kennesaw State to move ahead with football program

POSTED: September 15, 2010 1:48 p.m.

KENNESAW — Kennesaw State University is moving ahead with starting a football team.

In a press conference at the suburban Atlanta university Wednesday, President Dan Papp announced he is launching a fundraising campaign to help create a pigskin program. He said the team could begin playing in 2014 if enough money is raised in the next couple of years.

In December, the university formed a committee headed by legendary University of Georgia football coach Vince Dooley to determine if the campus could take on the costly task of opening a college football program. Dooley says the program would cost several million to start and as much as $5 million a year to run.

The team would compete in the Football Championship Subdivision, formerly Division I-AA.

The university just north of Atlanta has nearly 23,000 students and has grown rapidly in recent years.
