East Carolina, Tulane become newest Big East members


 It appears that Tulane isn't the last university to leave Conference USA for the Big East.

According to multiple reports, East Carolina will join the Big East as a football-only member in 2014. The Pirates are scheduled to hold a press conference at 5 p.m. Tuesday to make the announcement.
The Big East announced Tuesday afternoon that Tulane will join the conference for all sports in the 2014-15 academic year.
