Navy Preparing To Join Big East

By The Associated Press

Navy’s athletic director tells CBSSports.com that the academy is preparing to join the Big East, but when it will happen is unclear.

Chet Gladchuk told the website “everyone in Navy’s chain of command is comfortable” with the Big East, though the decision will ultimately be made by academy superintendent, Vice Admiral Michael Miller.

Gladchuk adds Navy must re-work future schedules, and bowl and television contracts and how long that takes will affect when it can join the conference. Navy is an independent in football and would be joining the Big East for football only.

The Big East announced last week the additions of Boise State and San Diego State in football, and Houston, Central Florida and SMU in all sports, effective 2013.
