Mountain West and Conference USA merger plans delayed

By Ferd Lewis


Plans for the Mountain West Conference and Conference USA to form an association or merge are being further pushed back, officials said.

In March officials from both conferences said an "early June" date was targeted.

But Neal Smatresk, Nevada-Las Vegas president and chair of the MWC Board of Directors told the Star-Advertiser in an email, "At this point we are revising our timelines."

He did not indicate what a new timeline might be.

The partnership, which has been more than a year in the planning, was to be for the 2013 football season. Hawaii joins the MWC July 1, 2012.

In the meantime, the MWC has announced the addition of San Jose State and Utah State for 2013 while C-USA said it will add Louisiana Tech, Texas-San Antonio, North Texas,  Florida International, Charlotte and

Old Dominion.
