Lou Nanne to lead Gophers sports fundraising

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Former University of Minnesota hockey star Lou Nanne, now a prominent Gophers booster, has been picked to lead the school's fundraising campaign for enhanced athletic facilities.

The university announced the news Monday.

With a separate practice building for the men's and women's basketball teams at the top of the list, the Gophers are pursuing $190 million in private money to upgrade their sports programs. Football practice facility renovation is also a high priority.

Nanne will lead a new volunteer leadership council that will assist the athletic department in meeting the needs of the athletes, coaches and programs. Nanne was a star for the Gophers in the 1960s. He went on to major roles with the Minnesota North Stars and Team USA hockey team.
