Temple talks with Big East

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Temple and th BigEast  are talkin about the Owls rejoining the conference as soon as next season.

 

Mid-American Conference commissioner Jon A. Steinbrecher said in a statement Wednesday that his league is “aware that Temple has been in discussions with the Big East regarding membership.”

 

A person familiar with the talks says the school and the Big East are trying to negotiate a deal that could have Temple in the league for all sports by next season. The person spoke Wednesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the talks are still ongoing.

 

Temple played in the Big East in football only from 1991-2004, but was forced out of the league. It played as a football independent and eventually landed in the Mid-American Conference in 2007.

 

The Owls’ other sports programs, including men’s and women’s basketball, are in the Atlantic 10.

 

The Big East has a vacancy next season now that West Virginia is being allowed to leave this summer for the Big 12.
