JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

Major announcements regarding the future of football at East Tennessee State University are scheduled to be made Tuesday evening.

A news conference is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. in the D.P. Culp University Center.

On Friday the Tennessee Board of Regents voted to return the program to ETSU.

Restoring football will cost each student $125 per semester.

The Bucs football program was shut down in 2003 after school leaders say it was losing an average of $1 million a year.
