    The San Jose State University track-and-field program's plans for a new facility has been pushed back to make room for a parking structure.

    University officials said there is no timetable when a new facility will be built, but noted the campus has raised money to upgrade its track-and-field program's home.

    SJSU's athletic director provided the following statement Wednesday to NBC Bay Area:

    “We looked at a number of options to give the track and field programs on-campus practice and competitive opportunities and determined the best solution...is to pursue nearby off-campus arrangements.”

    For now, the men's and women's track-and-field teams will practice at nearby San Jose City College.
