A new football program could be started at East Tennessee State University and a new fine and performing arts center could be built in a few years, according to the school’s president.

Beginning the process of starting a football team, establishing a dental school and creating an arts initiative for a new fine and performing arts center were among the many recommendations for ETSU made Wednesday by committees tasked with looking into the century-old school’s future.
