LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Football will not be added to the athletics programs at Florida Gulf Coast University, at least for now.

Board members met to discuss the proposal and President Wilson Bradshaw said the cost of more than $90 million dollars for the program is too high with the University having only 12,000 students.

Bradshaw said that if the student populations reaches almost 20,000, then the discussion for a football program could be revisited.
