VILLANOVA, Pa. — Villanova will not take a vote scheduled for this week that would decide if the football program would move to the Big East Conference.
The university released a statement Monday that says the Big East needs more time to do its due diligence regarding Villanova’s potential football membership.
Villanova is working with the Big East to provide additional information. The board of trustees was scheduled to vote on Tuesday. Instead, Villanova now hopes to vote in the “near future.”
The Wildcats would have all of their varsity sports programs under the Big East banner if they accept an invitation to join the conference.
If they make the move, there were would be a phase-in period for the Wildcats and a mandatory two-year provisional period, leaving 2014 or 2015 as a possible rookie year.
