Report: Butler Big East Bound

By Chris Lauderback on March 16, 2013 at 10:20a

Butler will pay a $2 million dollar exit fee and is also expected to accompany Creighton to the Big East. 

Pretty amazing just how high Butler's program has climbed in the last handful of years. 

More on the new Big East:

The revamped Big East conference will include the so-called Catholic 7: Georgetown, Villanova, St. John’s, Providence, Seton Hall, Marquette and DePaul. Xavier is expected to also join the conference next week, sources said. 

The Catholic 7 negotiated to retain the Big East name. The new conference will be effective July 1. Football schools that remained together in the former Big East will select a new conference name.

Brad Stevens played dumb when asked about the report after beating LaSalle.
