(AP) The Atlantic Coast Conference's plan to expand, revealed in 2010 and modified along the way, has come to fruition.


Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Notre Dame became members of the ACC at 12:01 ET Monday, giving the conference 15 members.


To celebrate the league's northern expansion, Commissioner John Swofford, North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams, Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher and Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer are among the ACC dignitaries scheduled to be in New York City on Monday afternoon. After holding a news conference at the NASDAQ stock exchange in Times Square, Swofford and company will take part in the closing bell ceremony.


July 1 is moving day for schools switching conferences all over the country, including those relocating to the newly named American Athletic Conference.
