Statement from Marshall AD Mike Hamrick on Tuesday's Conference USA Departures

Marshall AD Mike Hamrick

“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.”
