Big East Move

December 14, 2012 by  

Big East Move, Butler basketball coach Brad Stevens is used to hearing his name mentioned whenever there’s a coaching vacancy at a high major program. His school is starting to get the same treatment — whenever there are potentially open spots in a bigger conference.

USA TODAY Sports reported Thursday that the Big East’s seven Catholic schools plan to leave the league. If they choose to add three or five members and form either a 10- or 12-team league, they could consider wooing Butler. reported Thursday afternoon that Butler would be a target for a 12-team league.

Stevens himself first heard about the Big East shakeup when a reporter sent him a story on it.

“It was news to me,” Stevens told USA TODAY Sports. “I don’t know what all the discussion is. Obviously, when people start throwing that stuff out, there’s probably something behind the fact that those seven schools are at least in discussion. But I have no idea how it affects Butler. From my standpoint and my seat, I’m a lot more focused on (playing) Indiana this weekend. That’s enough for me.”
