The interim commissioner of the Big East Conference says he expects the search for a new commissioner to take about three months, and says he won’t be a candidate for the job.
Big East Commissioner John Marinatto resigned Monday after less than three years on the job and a wave of departures by high-profile schools.
A person familiar with the decision says the Big East will invite Boise State, Navy and Air Force for football only and SMU, Houston and Central Florida for all sports.
