Appalachian State University’s athletics feasibility committee released the full report of its seven-month study on Tuesday. The 10-member feasibility committee convened on Jan. 18 and after seven months of objective analysis, recommended on Aug. 22 that Appalachian seek membership in an athletics conference that sponsors football in the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). The ASU Board of Trustees approved the recommendation on Sept. 23.
The formal report includes complete data and analysis from the seven-month study, including an executive summary of the committee’s procedures and findings, a facilities assessment provided by Collegiate Consulting and a proposed FBS budget for the ASU athletics department.
“Once again, I’d like to thank the members of the athletics feasibility committee for their hard work over the past year,” ASU director of athletics Charlie Cobb said. “This report offers tangible evidence of the vision that the committee has for Appalachian athletics in the future. We will continue to work diligently to identify the best fit for Appalachian in the ever-changing Division I landscape going forward.”***
