Board of Regents holds off on proposed KSU sports plan

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

The Georgia Board of Regents has deferred any action on a proposal from Kennesaw State University to begin a football program and add a Title IX women's sport to its athletic program.

Al Barba, director of athletic communications at the school northwest of Atlanta, said Tuesday the regents indicated that the proposal will be studied further.

School officials were scheduled to meet with the regents at their meeting Tuesday. Kennesaw State officials have said the board's decision would culminate a six-year process involving studies, student voting and fundraising focused on launching a NCAA Division I football program.

The university competes in seven men's sports and nine women's sports in the 10-member Atlantic Sun Conference. With more than 24,600 students enrolled, Kennesaw State is Georgia's third-largest university.
