WKU will hold a press conference in the Topper Club at Smith Stadium at 11 a.m. Friday to reveal its new uniforms for this season.

The jerseys will accompany the white helmets that were unveiled last spring.

Athletics Director Ross Bjork tweeted on Thursday that the press conference is open to the public.

Head Coach Taggart said last spring that the uniforms would have a more “professional” look to them.

A new four-year contract extention with Russell Athletic will be announced at the press conference on Friday as well.

WKU’s current deal has one year left, lasting through the 2011-2012 school. The new deal will run through the 2015-2016 school year.

Russell President and CEO Rick Medlin and Executive Vice President Gary Barfield will be present.
