Sources: Temple in talks with Big East

The Big East is talking to Temple about the school joining the conference in all sports as early as 2012, sources confirmed to ESPN.com's Andrea Adelson on Wednesday.

The news was first reported by the New York Times.

Temple has improved in football of late, and would immediately take the place of West Virginia, which is headed to the Big 12. In basketball, Temple has been thriving under coach Fran Dunphy in recent years. The Owls have been in the NCAA tournament the past four seasons, and just entered the national rankings this week.
