Big East Commish Reaches Out To Others
Big East Commissioner John Marinatto says he has been in constant contact with Dan Beebe of the Big 12 and John Swofford of the Atlantic Coast Conference in recent days and has suggested the three meet to discuss conference realignment.
Marinatto didn’t reveal details about his conversations with his fellow commissioners but said, “I thought it would be important for us to meet face-to-face and take the lead in trying to do things the right way.”
Beebe’s conference, which nearly was wiped out last year when the Pac-10 expanded, is in danger of losing Texas A&M to the Southeastern Conference.
If the Aggies end up in the SEC, the league would likely need to add at least one more member.
