Navy Athletic Director Chet Gladchuck announced last month that the Midshipmen had made the decision to join the Big East as a football-only member, but that the Academy had yet to decide when they would make the jump to conference affiliation. On Monday night, reports indicated that the Midshipmen are set to join in 2015. Brett McMurphy reported that the announcement will come down on Tuesday.
Navy will join Boise State and San Diego State as football-only members, with the Broncos and Aztecs set to join in 2013. Central Florida, Houston, and SMU will join in all sports that same year. Navy will be the eleventh football school in the conference when it joins in 2015.
