WVU is Officially Out of the Big East at the End of June.

Here ya go, folks. Here is the quote Mountaineer fans have been waiting for since October. Oliver Luck said in a statement today that

“This closes a chapter and opens a new one filled with exciting possibilities for WVU’s future. I’ve heard from Mountaineer fans across the country who have made it very clear that they are proud and honored to be heading into the Big 12.”

And now, Mountaineer fans feel free to exhale.

WVU in the Big East will Officially End Today

It is done. WVU is out of the Big East, and headed to the Big 12. An announcement will come today. WVMetronews with the details.
The settlement allows WVU to leave the Big East for the Big 12 on July 1, but WVU will have to pay the Big East $20 in damages.

WVU, however, will get half of that payment from the Big 12, sources say. $5 million will be a direct gift while the remaining $5 million will be returned to the Big 12 in future years by WVU taking a smaller payout from the league.
