The USF Board of Trustees will meet today to examine the possibility of USF joining the Big East.
Michael Reich, director of media relations at USF, said the Board will get information from USF President Judy Genshaft.
“The president will be talking with them about her meeting with the Big East presidents in New York. She will fill them in,” Reich said.
Big East athletic directors could recommend to the conference presidents that USF be asked to join the league. The presidents will meet and extend invitations Nov. 4 in New York City.
However, the ultimate decision to accept the invitation would be left up to Genshaft.
“It is the President’s decision. She just wanted to consult with the Board,” Reich said.
Reich added that the university has not yet received an invitation or any word of a possible invitation.
The meeting will be in the Phyllis P. Marshall Center in Room 296 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
