A person familiar with the situation says that the Atlantic Coast Conference's presidents and chancellors have scheduled a conference call for Wednesday morning to discuss plans about replacing Maryland.

The person spoke to The Associated Press early Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the ACC has not publicly discussed future expansion plans.

Maryland announced last week it would join the Big Ten in 2014.

If the ACC chooses to replace the Terrapins, Big East schools Louisville and Connecticut are considered the front-runners to fill that vacancy.

A message to ACC spokesman Brian Morrison was not immediately returned early Wednesday morning.

The plans for the conference call were first reported late Tuesday night by ACCSports.com.
