Maryland announced Monday that it will leave the Atlantic Coast Conference for the Big Ten on July 1, 2014. There are reports that current Big East member Rutgers will also join the Big Ten.
Temple football coach Steve Addazio was asked Monday about the possibility of the Scarlet Knights leaving the conference.
“You know I heard that, and I just haven’t thought about it,” said Addazio, whose Owls entertain Syracuse in Friday’s regular-season finale. “So that’s one of those things that I have no thoughts on it until, you know, I have a chance to get through this game. You guys understand."
Temple rejoined the Big East for football this season and will become a conference member for all other sports on July 1, 2013.
