Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco Discusses Expansion, TV Deal
Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco today said that the conference "may look to add another school to bring football membership to 12 after Navy joins." But Aresco, speaking at a Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce meeting in Cromwell, Conn., said that "there is no urgency" and expansion "will not reach west of Texas." He also said that a TV deal "could be announced soon." Aresco: "We're getting closer. I think we could end up doing a deal with multiple networks" (COURANT.com, 1/28).
