STORRS, Conn. (AP) American Athletic Conference commissioner Mike Aresco said Thursday there is no chance the conference will keep the University of Connecticut as a football-only member.
UConn this week agreed to rejoin the Big East Conference for basketball and most other sports. The Big East does not compete in football.
UConn Athletic Director David Benedict said Thursday he wanted to talk to Aresco about football and about UConn's exit from the conference. The AAC bylaws require UConn to give 27 months' notice before leaving the AAC. It also must pay a $10 million exit fee.
