Report: UNT to stick with Sun Belt

There's been plenty of speculation that the emergence of the mega-conference will ultimately mean the Sun Belt gets squeezed out.

Exhibit A: The WAC making overtures to North Texas.

But it seems like the Mean Green aren't going anywere, at least right now.

From the Denton Record-Chronicle:

DENTON – North Texas has told the Western Athletic Conference that it isn't interested in joining, athletic director Rick Villarreal said Monday.

WAC commissioner Karl Benson contacted Villarreal earlier in the day to gauge the school's interest in joining the league.

Villarreal said that after consulting with UNT president Lane Rawlins, he told Benson that the school is not interested.

"I told him that while we appreciate the interest, that the University of North Texas is going to be a member of the Sun Belt Conference and work to continue to build the league," Villarreal said.
