On Thursday, Maryland head football coach DJ Durkin shared a photo via Twitter showing himself speaking with a man inside Cole Field House as it undergoes renovations to transform into the new home of the program's $155 million practice facility.

After a spring practice with his team last week, Durkin had been asked about the progress of the project.
"It's awesome. They're working on it so we know things are being done and the plan for the building is unbelievable," he said. "It's hard to talk about and not get excited. We got a virtual tour video we have, we got plans up there and it's unbelievable. It'll be the nicest in the country. It really will. It'll be first class all the way and so we're obviously very excited about it."
The practice facility is reportedly scheduled to be completed in 2017. The remainder of the project is scheduled to be finished in 2018.
