After Marinatto for the Big East

Filed under: Big East,Conference — Chas @ 1:52 pm

Well, in the wake of Marinatto’s early Monday resignation, there is already a flood of stories, opinions and speculation. Yes, it doesn’t seem as much of a concern for Pitt with the future looming with the ACC. Yet it really matters for a lot of reasons.

The obvious is that Pitt is still in the Big East for this year, so conference issues still impact. Plus, the fact that Pitt and Cuse technically could be held in the conference beyond this season means it is important to know some of the details of what went down and who will be the new conference chief. Since that relates to the negotiation of the exit.

So, how did this suddenly happen?

A source said Marinatto’s exit had been building for weeks. The source said the basketball members in the Big East were upset that they had no say in the expansion process.

This should not be a surprise that the basketball side of the Big East led the coup.
