Notre Dame Announces Wednesday Evening Press Conference To Discuss ACC

The University of Notre Dame has scheduled a press conference for 5:00 p.m. CT to discuss the school's new membership in the ACC. The school will now be competing in the ACC in every sport but hockey and football, which will stay independent.

Most of Notre Dame's athletics have competed in the Big East Conference since 1995, but the school accepted an invitation from the ACC on Wednesday. It's not entirely clear when the transition will be complete, but Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbuck says that the ACC and Big East will work on a timetable.

Notre Dame is the third major sports program to leave the Big East for the ACC recently. Pittsburgh and Syracuse are scheduled to become members of the ACC on July 1, 2013.
