San Diego State University president Adela de la Torre sent a written notice to the Mountain West Conference on Tuesday that it "intends to resign" from the league.

ESPN's Pete Thamel reported the news on Friday. He also relayed that SDSU later clarified in a "terse" back-and-forth with the Mountain West that the letter was "not the official notice of resignation."

Stewart Mandel, Nicole Auerbach and Chris Vannini of The Athletic confirmed the SDSU news and explained further logistics behind the university's letter, which also included a request for a one-month extension before giving an official letter of resignation.

In essence, SDSU has until June 30 to officially resign in time to leave in 2024. The exit fee would double from around $17 million to around $34 million if the school doesn't meet that deadline. A source told The Athletic that it's unclear why the MWC would agree to the extension request.
