UH to authorize conference move

October 24, 2011 2:38:36 PM PDT
University of Houston regents will meet Thursday to authorize the school chancellor to negotiate a move to a new athletic conference.

Houston is one the teams being courted by the Big East, which is trying to expand to 12 members. The Cougars currently play in Conference USA and the football team is ranked No. 18.

The agenda for the meeting announced Monday calls for allowing Chancellor and President Renu Khator to "execute a contract for athletic conference affiliation and to negotiate and provide notice of contract cancellation."

The agenda does not specify a conference destination.
