STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

An announcement is likely Wednesday morning on whether or not Georgia Southern University has joined the Sun Belt Conference.

GSU President Dr. Brooks A. Keel and Athletics Director Tom Kleinlein are holding a news conference at 9 a.m. Wednesday in the Williams Center.

For months now, there's been talk about Georgia Southern making the jump to the Sun Belt Conference. Now it looks like that the move may be announced.

WTOC spoke with one head football coach in the Southern Conference on Monday. He said that his sources are telling him that move will happen soon, with a possible announcement coming Wednesday morning.  

Southern Conference sources are also saying that a shakeup for the league is also coming on Wednesday when Appalachian State and Georgia Southern are expected to announced they're leaving the league to join the Sun Belt Conference.
