via @DaveBorges - UConn 'will deal w/ a $10 M exit fee from the AAC, which also requires a 27-month notice for departing school. UConn will likely negotiate the terms so it can join the Big East in 2020, but that could result in an inflated exit fee.'https://t.co/QA0KAtUfzO— Kris M Gardner (@TheHRReview) June 26, 2019
While the discussion of the buyout/buyin is brewing, UConn Football still seems to be up in the air...
For now, it looks like the Georgetown Hoyas have a big rival back in the fold.
