Former Tennessee Titans linebacker and Coatesville native Derrick Morgan returned to his hometown to notify city Council that his opportunity investment and development organization, KNGDM Impact Fund, is expecting to break ground for a proposed sports and entertainment complex by the end of the calendar year.
Morgan and his group presented a plan to bring a sports complex, hotel and performing arts center to the city on Feb. 10. The project will be on the 21-acre Flats industrial site, near the intersection of Route 82 and Lincoln Highway.
Morgan called Coatesville a “sports town” and has worked on this project since May 2019. During his nine-year NFL career, Morgan thought of how he could “make a difference and play a role” in the Coatesville community.
