Things have been looking up for the Michigan football program ever since Jim Harbaugh arrived on the scene in 2015. In addition to the improved product on the field and upswing in recruiting, the football program now has a shiny new performance center to look forward to utilizing in the future.

Michigan’s Board of Regents approved a $21 million project that will provide the football program with a “32,000-square-foot performance center” that will be built inside the existing Bennie Oosterbaan Field House, originally built in 1980.

The performance center “will be used for strength and conditioning training for the football program.” according to the school’s website.

“The project also will address infrastructure and life-safety needs such as the replacement of the existing roof, installation of new fire alarm and suppression systems, and upgrades to the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and lighting systems throughout the building.”

Clearly, the arrow is pointing up, as Harbaugh is fond of saying, for the Michigan football program.
