Statement From Mike Tranghese

Mike Tranghese released the following statement after Miami made their decision to join the ACC.

"Although we are certainly disappointed with the actions taken this week by the ACC, we as a conference will now turn our attention to the future and the challenges that lie ahead.

Our membership continues to be supportive and will now collectively focus its energies on moving forward to develop plans to maintain the national academic and athletic excellence and presence that the BIG EAST Conference has long represented.

At some point in the future, our chief executive officers and athletic directors will come together to discuss our future. It is my hope that we deliberately embark on this very complex task with patience, sensitivity and thoughtfulness.
