CAA postpones exit fee vote

According to Brian Mull of the Wilmington Star, the CAA has postponed today’s schedule vote on whether or not to raise the conference exit fee from $250,000 to upwards of $1 million.

Mull cited a lack of of presidents quorum, and later tweeted that “the call of the Council of Presidents will be rescheduled at a later date”.

There has been much speculation about the future of the conference after rumors surfaced of a possible departure of league powers VCU and George Mason to the Atlantic 10. CAA commissioner Tom Yeager addressed the speculation on a media conference call, saying he felt confident that all 12 league members would be returning to the CAA, only to see Georgia State officially leave for Sunbelt yesterday.
