Pac-12 extends Scott

TUESDAY, FEB. 7, 2012

The Pac-12 Conference’s board of directors unanimously decided to extend the contract of commissioner Larry Scott on Monday, giving him the opportunity to push forward with his plans to reshape the league through 2016. All 12 university presidents who make up the board agreed to the extension. Since taking over on July 1, 2009, Scott has overseen the conference’s expansion to include Utah and Colorado. He also negotiated a landmark 12-year television contract last summer with Fox and ESPN worth about $3 billion and helped created the Pac-12 Network and Pac-12 Digital Network. The 47-year-old Scott is a former chairman of the Women’s Tennis Association as well as a former player and executive with the men’s ATP Tour. – Associated Press
