ATLANTA (AP) -- The site for the new College Football Hall of Fame has been identified.

Atlanta also has architects ready to work on plans for interactive and immersive exhibits to make the facility more than a collection of statues, photos and videos.

But before construction can begin in February as scheduled, another $15 million must be raised. In this economy, that's a major challenge and Gary Stokan says that's the reason he is stepping down as president and CEO of the Atlanta Hall Management.

Stokan says he needs to focus on his duties as the head of the Chick-fil-A Bowl. He says Atlanta needs an expert in corporate fundraising for the city to complete its drive to have the Hall of Fame move from South Bend, Ind.
