Big East commissioner Mike Aresco says the conference is looking to add another school, and may sign a TV deal with multiple networks.
Aresco spoke to reporters after a local chamber of commerce breakfast in Connecticut.
He says the Big East wants to keep its name as it rebrands, and wants to add one more school to give it 12 playing both football and basketball after Navy joins the league in 2015.
Aresco also says that he hopes deals can be worked out to keep traditional conference rivalry games intact even after the so-called Catholic seven schools leave the Big East to form their own basketball league.
