A task force that will take an in-depth look at East Tennessee State athletics, including the possible return of football, has begun its work.

The 15-member panel met for the first time Tuesday on campus and has already broken into four subcommittees. Chairman Ken Bailey said ETSU president Brian Noland expects to have the recommendations from its work in early December.

“Dr. Noland has asked us to look at athletics, everything in athletics — facilities, sports offered, finances, engagement, our vision for the future,” said Bailey, a Greeneville judge. “It is a lot, but this committee has been charged to dream big, look at all the options and possibilities out there. Dr. Noland has big plans and big ideas for the university.”
