Report: Navy to join Big East in 2015

Navy appears ready to join the Big East.

Joe Schad of ESPN reports that Navy is expected to announce soon that it will join the league for football in 2015, citing a source. Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk has said in the past that scheduling and television matters have held up the process.

When Navy does join, the Midshipmen would become the 11th member of the reconfigured Big East. Commissioner John Marinatto has said he wants to expand the league to 12 teams, and add a conference championship game.
