PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Big East Commissioner John Marinatto has resigned.

 

The conference said Monday that Marinatto had decided to step down after less than three years in the position. The Big East lost several high-profile members under his watch.

 

In a statement from the conference, Marinatto says he is "proud of what we have been able to accomplish."

 

Former Miami Dolphins CEO Joseph A. Bailey III will serve as interim commissioner.

 

Pittsburgh and Syracuse made plans to leave for the Atlantic Coast Conference in September, and West Virginia bolted for the Big 12 the following month. The Big East then added Central Florida, Houston, Memphis, SMU and Temple for all sports and Boise State, San Diego State and Navy for football only.
