Jimmye Laycock Football Center, Constructed 2006-2008

The Jimmye Laycock Football Center, located northwest of Zable Stadium, contains a number of facilities that support the football program at William & Mary. These include meeting rooms, coaches' offices, lockers, an athletic training room, equipment storage areas, and administrative space. It also features an entrance way that includes an area dedicated to the football program's rich history. The center is named after Jimmye Laycock, class of 1970 and head football coach of the Tribe since 1980.

The Laycock Center, which opened in 2008 in time for the fall football season, was largely funded through a combination of private gifts and student fees. Its construction was part of an effort by William & Mary to improve football facilities in the early 2000s.
