West Virginia’s decision to leave the Big East may trigger Notre Dame’s ouster from the league as well, the New York Post reported in Wednesday’s editions.
Notre Dame is currently independent in football, but houses all of its other sports in the Big East.
Now, the Irish may consider joining the Big Ten or the ACC in all sports or maintaining their independence while entering the Big 12 for all other sports, the Post reported.
“Each option has a strength and a weakness,” said a Post source. “The Big Ten keeps them a national program, but football will be hard-pressed to win the league and it hurts the basketball’s ability to recruit in the East.”
