Reports began surfacing Saturday afternoon after NKU announced an unplanned Board of Regents meeting followed by a press conference Monday May 11 that the university will be moving to the Horizon League.

A transition to the league would put NKU among competitors such as Cleveland State University, the Univeristy of Illinois at Chicago, the University of Wisconson at Green Bay, and what would be the closest competitor, Wright State University.

These reports come as NKU prepares to enter its final year of reclassification from Division II to Division I.

NKU Athletics has seen other changes in recent years after the scadals of former Athletic Director Scott Eaton, the appointment of current Athletic Director Ken Bothof and most recently the hiring of new men’s basketball Head Coach John Brannen.

Bothof, who began at NKU IN 2013, came from the University of Wisconson at Green Bay giving him a history with the Horizon League.
