Big East To Become America Athletic Conference

The old Big East Conference has reportedly settled on a new name. ESPN.com reports America Athletic Conference is the new name for the former Big East. The new league will have 10 teams starting this year and will grow to 12 by 2015. A new name was needed after the seven Catholic schools kept the Big East name when they announced they were splitting and forming their own league.


Richard Pitino Agrees To Take Over At Minnesota

(Minneapolis, MN) -- Richard Pitino has agreed to succeed Tubby Smith as the Minnesota Golden Gophers men's basketball coach. Pitino is the son of Louisville head coach Rick Pitino. The 30-year-old Richard Pitino led Florida International to an 18-14 record in his first season. Smith was fired March 25 after six seasons, but has since been hired at Texas Tech. The Gophers were 124-81 under Smith and never had a losing season.
