UAB President will announce decision on football program on June 1

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — UAB will announce its decision on whether to restart the football program on June 1.
University President Ray Watts disclosed that date Wednesday in an email to students, faculty and staff.
UAB is expected to receive a report from College Sports Solutions on Friday. The company is evaluating the findings cited in Watts’ December decision to cut football, rifle and bowling.
The initial study by CarrSports Consulting calculated that it would cost UAB $49 million over five years to field a competitive football program.
A task force commissioned by UAB selected College Sports Solutions after the university fired its first choice.
Watts says university officials “will consider the report’s findings, along with other important, valuable and mission-critical data” to determine the program’s fate.
