MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Soon after Gene Taylor arrived at Kansas State, the new athletic director began quietly speaking with coaches, staff and athletes to ascertain what they needed to remain competitive in the Big 12.

In terms of facilities, the result is a $200 million-plus master plan unveiled Friday.

The school partnered with architectural firm HOK to develop the plan, which is highlighted by a new football training complex and extensive renovations to Bramlage Coliseum. The plan will touch each of the school's 16 sports programs, ranging from soccer and baseball to tennis and golf.
