NEW YORK (AP) -- Big East Commissioner John Marinatto says all the members of his conference are committed to staying together.
The presidents and athletic directors from the Big East football schools met for 3 hours at a Manhattan hotel Tuesday.
Marinatto says each member pledged to remain in the conference and the league is aggressively searching for replacements for Pittsburgh and Syracuse. He says the non-football members also are on board.
