“We at Marshall University would like to wish Tulane and East Carolina the best of luck in their new conference affiliations. At the same time, I remain confident in the future of Conference USA, and the direction we will go.
“We have recently made some great regional additions (Charlotte, Old Dominion and a growing and vibrant Florida institution, FIU) in Conference USA for future matchups that Herd fans will enjoy, and I feel this trend of expanding with the right institutions will continue.
“My focus now, as it has been since I returned here more than three years ago, is on our program at Marshall University, and how we can best build for the future for our coaches and student-athletes. We should focus on what we can control, and we are doing just that with our $30 million Vision Campaign that will significantly improve and add to our athletic facilities.”
