(Updated with Pics & Video) USC's impressive John McKay facility

The $70 million, 110,000 square foot John McKay Center is set to be dedicated today. You can see the architectural renderings here

The facility will serve as the main hub for USC coaches and players and will house a 32,000 square foot weight room, and 18,000 square foot training room on the basement level. The new weight room will be three times the size of the previous area, while the training room will add about six times the square footage. That's quite an upgrade.

Above the weight room and training room, on the main floor, will be the academic center with access to tutors, study rooms, and computer access. The second floor will house the football coaches offices, team meeting rooms and a video production area.

Kiffin and the staff are already familiar with the building, as they were allowed to start moving in at the end of July.

Athletic director Pat Haden has called the new facility "the finest of it's kind anywhere."

Pictures of the new facility can be seen below.
