The Big East conference will announce an agreement with seven of its Catholic school members to separate on Thursday, according to a report on ESPN.com.

According to the report, the seven schools - DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, Seton Hall, St. John's, and Villanova - will retain the Big East name and begin administration of the league on July 1. The new Big East is expected to add Butler, Xavier, and Creighton before the 2013-2014 season, with Dayton and St. Louis prime candidates to expand the league the following season.

The Catholic schools' departure leaves 10 remaining teams from the old Big East, who will have to determine a new name for their conference by July 1.
