East Carolina will join the soon-to-be-renamed Big East as an all-sports member, instead of just for football as originally planned.

The league and school announced the move Wednesday.

East Carolina had already been set to join Cincinnati, Connecticut, South Florida and the rest of the Big East football schools in 2014. But with the recent split of the football and basketball schools, the football side has decided to give up the name Big East and needed to add more members for all sports.

East Carolina is leaving Conference USA.

A person with knowledge of the decision says Tulsa will also be added to the Big East soon. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because that move has yet to be announced.
