Georgia Southern Ready to Move to FBS

Posted: Updated:

Augusta, GA (WJBF) -- Georgia Southern's Athletics Director Tom Kleinlein was in Augusta Wednesday to talk about the team's upcoming big move.

Georgia Southern is making the transition from FCS (and the Southern Conference) to the FBS (and Sun Belt Conference) in not only football, but all sports except soccer. 

The Eagles are working on a $20 plus million dollar renovation of our football stadium. According to the Eagles, because of the number of Augusta connections to our University and Athletics program Tom felt it was important to come to Augusta and tell the story of why this transition is best for their university.

Kleinlein also brought sketches of the new stadium. The renovations are expected to be finished in 2014.
