Michigan State University continues to invest in the school's football program and has renewed the contract for men's head basketball coach Tom Izzo.

Trustees on Friday approved plans to add a two-story building to Spartan Stadium.

The $18-million renovation project would be paid through donations and include new locker rooms for players, concession areas, media room and a sports recruiting room.

A new, $10million video/scoreboard system was installed this year at the stadium.

Izzo's rolling contract is for seven years.

Trustees also renewed rolling 5-year contracts for athletic director Mark Hollis and women's head basketball coach Suzy Merchant.
