Pittsburgh will pay the Big East $7.5 million to leave the conference after the upcoming school year and join the Atlantic Coast Conference on July 1, 2013.

The Big East reached a similar deal earlier this week with Syracuse, which is also leaving for the ACC.

The deal with Pitt includes the $5 million it already paid after it announced it was leaving and agreed to remain in the conference until July 1, 2014.
