Tulane, ECU to join Big East in 2014
The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because neither the conference nor school was prepared to make an official announcement.
New Orleans-based Tulane called a news conference for 2 p.m. EST on campus but didn't reveal the reason.
Tulane and East Carolina currently play in Conference USA. They will become the fifth and sixth C-USA schools to join the rebuilding Big East in the last two years.
Rutgers of the Big East announced last week that it was joining the Big Ten.
