NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - The Rutgers University Board of Governors has voted to continue with a slightly scaled-back expansion of Scarlet Knights' football stadium.
The vote on Friday came two days after athletic director Bob Mulcahy was fired. Mulcahy was seen as the architect of building a major sports program at Rutgers, but came under fire for his department's business practices.
The board agreed to move ahead with the expansion, but will keep the project at the original $102 million budget. Rutgers hoped to only kick in $72 million, but after private fundraising efforts fell flat, it will be responsible for the full price tag.
As a result, some elements will be cut, including new locker rooms.
