NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Upgrades to the University of Oklahoma's stadium are on the agenda when the school's board of regents meets next week.

The proposed renovations to Oklahoma Memorial Stadium are scheduled to be discussed when officials meet in Ardmore beginning Monday.

The regents are also scheduled to review the contracts and pay for the school's athletic department personnel, including football head coach Bob Stoops and his staff.

The school hasn't released an estimate of how much the stadium upgrades would cost, according to the Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/1nSCPTK ).

OU President David Boren told The Norman Transcript last month that plans were in the works for major stadium improvements — though he didn't expect a significant expansion beyond the current seating capacity of 82,112.
