Rhode Island reconsidering move from CAA

Kingston, RI (Sports Network) - The University of Rhode Island is reconsidering its impending move from CAA Football to the Northeast Conference next year.

The move has been planned since 2010, but the Colonial Athletic Association recently asked URI to consider staying in its conference.

Thorr Bjorn, URI's director of athletics, told the Providence Journal that his university is considering the CAA's invitation and will "take the time to do what we think is best for the future of URI football."

URI was a charter member of the conference - then known as the Yankee Conference - in 1946.

With Tuesday's announced additions of Albany, from the NEC, and Stony Brook, from the Big South Conference, for the 2013 season, CAA Football would have 10 teams: Albany, Delaware, James Madison, Maine, New Hampshire, Richmond, Stony Brook, Towson, Villanova and William & Mary.
