POSTED AUG. 21 AT 9:50 A.M.

The university is expected to announce a decision regarding the future of home Hurricane football games at 10:30 a.m. during a press conference in the Hecht Athletic Center.

The UM Board of Trustee’s executive committee is currently meeting in the Hurricane 100 room of the BankUnited Center to decide whether or not to stay at the Orange Bowl or move to Dolphin Stadium.

As of about 9:30 a.m., a few people–likely university media relations and other officials–stood outside the Hurricane 100 room and several UM police officers patrolled the area on bikes and Segways.

Media have began arriving at the Hecht Athletic Center, with cars and television trucks lined up outside.

Please continue to check for updates.
