The soon-to-be-renamed Big East Conference is set to add Tulsa as its 12th member and make East Carolina a member in all sports, sources told ESPN.
League presidents are expected to vote on Tulsa's addition by next week. Though commissioner Mike Aresco didn't name specific expansion candidates during a conference call announcing a hoops media rights deal Tuesday, he did say the league expected to have "something relatively soon" on a new member.
Tulsa has long been rumored to be the favored candidate and would begin league play in 2014. When Tulsa is approved, the league will have nine former Conference USA schools.
