Navy to join the Big East in 2015.

The Big East is adding another member to it's ranks. This time it's Navy, who will join as a football-only member in 2015.

“While our independent status has served Navy football well to date, Big East conference affiliation will help ensure our future scholar-athletes and athletic programs remain competitive at the highest levels for the foreseeable future,” said Vice Admiral Michael Miller, superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy.

Big East Commissioner John Marinatto was to hold a conference call Tuesday afternoon with Miller, athletic director Chet Gladchuk and football coach Ken Niumatalolo."

Navy joins the list of new Big East football schools, which includes Boise State, Central Florida, Houston, and San Diego State, all joining a couple years ahead on the Midshipmen in 2013.
