A student from the University of Florida is working on a commercial project in the Houston area.
The project will involve building an athletic stadium that will be used for football games.
The project, which will be called the College Football Student Stadium Project, was announced by the College of Engineering and the College and State of Florida’s student-run engineering program on Wednesday.
It will also include student-led initiatives to promote the use of commercial space for student and faculty research.
The stadium project is named for University of South Florida’s football coach Nick Saban, who served as a university coach for two decades.
Saban also played in the NFL.
He led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the 2012 NFL championship game.
The university’s football team is based in South Florida.
The school has about 4,500 students and faculty and offers more than 130 degree programs, said Jim Lacey, director of the College Engineering program.
The college offers master’s and bachelor’s degrees in engineering.
Sabans father, Bobby, played for the Tampa Buccaneers.
He was the team’s defensive coordinator in 2002 and 2005.
