Notre Dame continues holding pattern with Big East, ACC

The Big East is expecting Notre Dame to remain in the conference for the next three seasons.


There are no negotiations between Notre Dame and the Big East to allow the Fighting Irish to shift all sports, except Football and Hockey, to the Atlantic Coast Conference ahead of the 27-month waiting period, according to Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune.

Notre Dame and the ACC announced the move on Sept. 12 with the school expressing interest to join its new conference in time for the 2013-14 season.

Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco said that he has not "had any additional talks with Notre Dame" and as far as he is concerned, they will play in the conference for three more seasons.

Aresco said that Notre Dame would have to approach them if they are planning on leaving early and that they have "no discussions planned at the moment."

The 27-month waiting period to transfer conferences can be altered if the two sides reach a financial agreement to move earlier.
