Move of Marshall, Old Dominion, Southern Miss from Conference USA to Sun Belt now complete

+

The acrimonious departure of Old Dominion, Marshall and Southern Miss from Conference USA to the Sun Belt Conference has been finalized, the latter league announced on Tuesday in a joint statement with the three schools. The schools are officially headed to the Sun Belt for the 2022 football season, ending a spate of legal wrangling that included court injunctions to delay arbitration. The terms of the separation agreement were not released. By departing at the end of this academic year, Old Dominion, Marshall and Southern Miss broke the Conference USA bylaws that require a 14-month notice before leaving the league.
