SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Notre Dame will be in the Big East at least one more season.
Athletic director Jack Swarbrick said Thursday the university has said all along it would like to leave the Big East for the Atlantic Coast Conference before the required 27 months' notice for departing members, but was unable to reach an agreement to do so before next season.
Men's basketball coach Mike Brey first brought up the subject during his teleconference Thursday, saying one reason Notre Dame decided to stay another season is it believes the seven Catholic schools that have decided to leave and form their own league will remain in the Big East next season.
Swarbrick says he will continue to negotiate with the Big East for Notre Dame to leave the league before 2015.
