HONOLULU — The University of Hawaii is joining the Mountain West Conference for football and the Big West in other sports, abandoning the Western Athletic Conference after 32 years.

School President M.R.C. Greenwood said Friday that Hawaii will make the move in 2012, following Boise State, Nevada and Fresno State to the MWC.

The four schools represent the top football programs in the WAC, which is adding Texas-San Antonio, Texas State and the University of Denver on July 1, 2012. Denver doesn't have a football team.

The Warriors are the WAC's longest-running member and shared the conference football title with Boise State and Nevada this year.

The remaining WAC members are San Jose State, Idaho, New Mexico State, Louisiana Tech and Utah State.
